France forward Kylian Mbappe was forced out of a training session on Tuesday afternoon following a clash with teammate Adil Rami, just four days before Les Bleus are due to commence their World Cup campaign against Australia in the city of Kazan.

Mbappe is thought to have taken a knock to the left ankle. And while it remains unclear exactly how severe any damage might be, for now it puts his participation in France’s opener in doubt.

The 19-year-old, one of only seven teenagers at the World Cup this year, will become the world’s second most expensive player when his permanent €180m transfer from Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain is officially completed on 1st July.

France’s number 10 scored 15 times in Ligue 1 as PSG swept to the title and expectations has been high for a young but talented French squad ahead of the World Cup.

After Australia, France’s next group game will take place against Peru on 21st June, with the third and final outing against fellow Europeans Denmark on 26th June.
