Kylian Mbappe suffers injury scare ahead of World Cup

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has suffered an injury scare in Sunday’s Ligue 1 victory over Lorient.
Goals from Neymar and Danilo secure PSG a 2-1 away victory against Lorient, but there was a concern when Mbappe had to be withdrawn in the 85th minute after feeling discomfort in his left adductor.

The France international was initially treated on the bench, but he soon headed down the tunnel with PSG medical staff.

After the game, PSG boss Christophe Galtier played down fears that Mbappe was injured, indicating that he brought the forward off as a precaution.

Galtier told reporters: “It’s nothing serious. He made a great effort, he was tired and it is much better to go out without taking any risks.”

Mbappe is expected to be involved when France begin their World Cup defence against Australia on November 22 before facing Denmark and Tunisia to round off the group stage.
