Euro 2024 – French team – With Kylian Mbappé, Deschamps advances masked: “He is better today than yesterday”:

This is the soap opera of recent days among the Blues. The physical state of Kylian Mbappé – and especially his nose – is at the heart of the debates. And this Monday on the eve of the French team’s third match against Poland (6 p.m. this Tuesday), the echoes are still reassuring. “It’s better every day, it’s better today than yesterday or the day before yesterday. The hematoma has resolved and he is getting used to the mask. He wants to play tomorrow as much as against the Netherlands“, launched Didier Deschamps during the pre-match press conference.

If the Blues coach still leaves doubt about the participation of the future Real Madrid player, the trend is positive to see him against the Poles, while he remained on the bench on Friday against the Dutch. Because for several days now, Mbappé has been training with a mask. On Saturday, he even took part in an opposition with the young people of the SC Paderborn club. And during the last training session, he visibly regained his sensations. “I kind of forgot the fact that he had a mask because he was good, dangerous and decisive. And he helped us win practice. He feels good. And I hope that will be felt during the match“, slipped N’Golo Kanté.

It’s a big plus to have Kylian

It now remains to be seen whether the mask he will have to wear for the rest of the competition will not bother him on the green rectangles and reduce his abilities. But Didier Deschamps wants to be reassuring here too even if he concedes that it is not ideal for his player’s vision: “For breathing, no. But the vision, yes. It limits the vision a little, said the boss of the Blues when he was asked about the fact that the mask could bother his star player. It is supposed to protect so in certain situations, it limits the angle of view. Is there a greater risk of playing in the middle? No, contacts are everywhere, in all duels. It all depends on the position. You have to get used to it, it feels like you have 3D glasses a bit.”

If he returns on Tuesday, Kylian Mbappé would in any case be a strong reinforcement to try to unblock the Tricolores in the offensive area. Because since the start of the Euro, the Blues have still not scored a single goal in the game.It’s annoying not to have scored with all the chances we had“, admitted Deschamps. But if Mbappé signs his return, the French coach will find his number 1 asset. And everyone hopes for it among the Blues as they intend to secure first place in the group by winning. by a large score as confirmed by N’Golo Kanté: “The return of Kylian can help us score and win matches. It’s a big plus to have Kylian“.
