Mbappé appeals for a mask at the Euro after suffering a broken nose

DUESSELDORF.- Kylian Mbappé He suffered a broken nose in France’s debut at the European Championship and will have to wear a protective mask to continue in the tournament.

The French Football Federation reported on Tuesday that it received “positive” news regarding Mbappé’s continuity in the Euro 2024, since the star will not have to undergo surgery. But he did not confirm whether he will be able to play immediately.

“The news is encouraging as surgery is not anticipated in the immediate future. As for their participation in the rest of the tournament, it is too premature to give a deadline,” said Philippe Diallo, the president of the federation.

The federation said Mbappé received treatment from Dr. Franck Le Gall at a hospital in Duesseldorf after France’s 1-0 victory over Austria.

He added that the mask will allow Mbappé to “consider continuing in the tournament after a period of treatment.”

If he continues in the Euros, the forward will have to wear the same type of protective mask used by Son Heung-min and Josko Gvardiol in the 2022 World Cup.

But the speed of your return will depend on the severity of the discomfort you may feel.

Type of injury:

A broken nose can take weeks to heal. Medical experts recommend not participating in sports activities for at least six weeks if there is a risk of a blow to the face.

Mbappé, who rejoined the Les Bleus camp, took the injury with humor.

“Mask ideas?” Mbappé posted on the X social network.

The attacker, one of the most important in the world of football for some years, was announced as Real Madrid’s new signing just before the start of the Euro Cup in Germany. In this way, Mbappé put an end to his working relationship with Paris Saint-Germain.
