If he should be lined up against Poland this Tuesday evening, Kylian Mbappé must expect a difficult encounter.

It is now certain, Kylian Mbappé will make his comeback this Tuesday during the third match against Poland. Just eight days after breaking his nose against Austria. Preserved against the Netherlands, the French world champion will start the match this time. And this despite doubts surrounding his ability to play with a mask.

“It is not restrictive, but in certain situations, it limits the angle of view, also confided Didier Deschamps at a press conference. It is his field of vision, in certain situations, which can be disturbed. This can cause him to lose a tenth of a second. It takes getting used to, it’s a bit like having 3D glasses, a bit, even if technologies have improved and allow masks to be as thin as possible. »

And Kylian Mbappé can indeed expect to experience a complicated moment. This is evidenced by the testimony of Arnaud Nordin, who had to wear a mask for two months last year after a fracture of the Zygomatic bone. “What bothered me the most was the sweating; With spring and the heat arriving in Montpellier, sweat dripped from my forehead and reached my eyes. It was hard to mop up,” he told in the columns of Le Parisien.

“The first time I put it on in training, I said to myself that it was going to be difficult to play with, he continued. I didn’t have peripheral vision and having something on my face is never easy. »
The Hérault community nevertheless quickly got used to his protection. “After a few days, I got used to it. The first two matches, we got used to it slowly. And after that it was no longer a problem. My face was healing completely. But since I had the mask, that didn’t stop me from putting heads. »
