France star Kylian Mbappe's Euro 2024 fate still unknown

France Football Federation president Philippe Diallo admits it's not yet clear if star forward Kylian Mbappe will continue playing at Euro 2024 after breaking his nose.

The forward was taken to hospital in Dusseldorf after colliding with opponent Kevin Danso's shoulder in the victory over Austria.

No immediate surgery was required and plans were being made for the 25-year-old to wear a protective mask but Diallo said France were still unsure of a timescale of recovery for Real Madrid's new signing.

"The first responses were quite positive as there is no surgery planned for the moment," he told a press conference.

"Now it is too soon to know if he will be able to play for the remainder of the tournament, or to provide a schedule for his situation.

"Obviously there were some medical examinations performed on site to know more about Kylian Mbappe's nose and they made some conclusions pretty quickly.

"They tried to reduce the aftermath of his fracture, for him to be able to remain in the tournament.

"As I said, there is no surgery planned for the moment and we are still waiting for things to evolve later in order to know more about the conditions of his participation in the remainder of the tournament."
