Present this Monday, June 24 at a press conference, on the eve of the French team's match against Poland, the coach and his midfielder gave reassuring news from the captain, victim of a broken nose a week ago.

"It’s better every day". A week after the broken nose he suffered against Austria (0-1), will Kylian Mbappé finally be able to play again?? If Didier Deschamps and N’Golo Kanté did not respond on the eve of France-Poland, Tuesday (6 p.m.), they gave rather reassuring news at a press conference on Monday.

"It’s better every day. It’s better than yesterday or the day before yesterday. He does the sessions, the hematoma has resolved well and there is the matter of getting used to the mask", explained the coach.

"The mask limits the field of vision a little"

The positive development of the injury has allowed the captain of the Blues to take part in training since Saturday. And even to make people forget their past problems, Monday during the opposition on the eve of the match, according to Kanté. "I’had somewhat forgotten the fact that he had a mask because’he was good, dangerous, he helped us win the ;training. He feels good, I hope that will be felt during the match", explained the middle.

A week after this shock with the shoulder of Austrian defender Danso, Mbappé must nevertheless learn to live with the mask, protection not necessarily without consequences. "Not in breathing but for vision yes, detailed Deschamps. It's not restrictive but it limits the field of vision a little."

"Having it is a big plus"

The Blues would really need their striker to win a match which could allow them to take first place, which will be decisive for the future. And to score goals, the problem at the start of the Euro. "We all know Kylian's finishing qualities. What is reassuring is that we had quite a few chances during the second match. The return of Kylian can help us score and win. Having it is a big plus, said N’Golo Kanté.

As for desire, on the other hand, no doubt, said Didier Deschamps. "I won't hide it from you, he wants to play tomorrow as much as against the Netherlands". Remaining on the bench against the Dutch on Friday, Mbappé showed signs of impatience. On Tuesday, it might no longer be necessary.
