Didier Deschamps provides an injury update on Kylian Mbappe

After being substituted in a Friendly against Bolivia following a knock, France head coach Didier Deschamps has revealed that Kylian Mbappe's injury is 'nothing serious'.

Mbappe was withdrawn at half-time in France's 2-0 international friendly win over Bolivia on Sunday 2nd June as Wissam Ben Yedder came on in his place. The Paris Saint-Germain forward suffered a seemingly minor injury in a tangle with Bolivia's Raul Castro in the clash staged at Nantes. Mbappe has been on fine form in the just concluded season winning the top scorer's award in Ligue 1 after scoring 33 league goals.

Speaking in a press conference after the win over Bolivia, Deschamps provided an update on Mbappe's injury, "It's nothing serious. It's just ankle foot pain after a touch. There was no risk to take. He should go [for the next match]." France next take on Turkey in the Euro 2020 qualifiers on Saturday 8th June.
