Kylian Mbappé will not be available this Tuesday for Didier Deschamps in the second match of the UEFA Nations League of the ‘bleus’ after having tested positive for coronavirus in a test carried out on the entire French team.
As France Football has advanced, the PSG attacker joins six of his teammates who had previously been infected: Neymar, Icardi, Di Maria, Paredes, Keylor Navas and Marquinhos. He is totally asymptomatic, but will be placed in isolation immediately.
Mbappé was the starter and scorer in last Saturday’s match against Sweden, but you will not be able to complete this concentration. In addition, it is planned that he will not be able to play the next matches of his team, against the Lens and Olympique de Marseille, considered the classic of French football.
The regrowth produced at PSG is a serious problem for Thomas Tuchel, who has seen how suddenly he loses seven players of which at least five are fundamental in his scheme. For the moment, the rest of the teammates are fine, although they will continue to carry out periodic checks just in case the focus has spread to the team’s dressing room at the Parque de los Príncipes.
