The 19-year-old was injured in a training ground incident with the severity of his injury now unknown but the forward had to leave the session.

The 19-year old striker, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain, hurt his left ankle due to a tackle from defender Adil Rami and was unable to continue with the practice.

Didier Deschamps' France open their campaign against Australia on Saturday (11am United Kingdom time) before taking on Peru and Denmark in Group C.

"And leave my friend [Adil Rami] alone, it wasn't nasty".

The incident involving Mbappe and Rami sent social media into overdrive.


The incident comes just four days before Didier Deschamps' men begin their campaign in Russian Federation with Saturday's clash against Australia.

The 1998 winners also face South American side Peru and fellow Europeans Denmark in Group C and they are heavy favourites to progress to the knockout rounds as winners.

Kylian Mbappe scored a late equalizer for France to offset a goal from Julian Green and deny an inexperienced USMNT side a win in Lyon.

The 19-year-old star enjoyed an excellent debut season at PSG, scoring 21 times and setting up 16 in 46 games in all competitions.
