With Kylian Mbappe a doubt after breaking his nose in Monday's win over Austria (1-0), France play a European football classic against the Netherlands in Leipzig on Friday, with Antoine Griezmann looking for his best version.

In the last World Cup, where France was the runner-up, Griezmann did not shine at the start of the Euro Cup, in a tough competition, with a lot of fights, an ecosystem that the Atlético de Madrid playmaker also knows. Roll up his shirt.

The reason why Mbappé will not be able to wear this mask at Euro 2024. What does the regulation say?

– “Antoine Indispensable” –

Didier Deschamps' formula became famous during this decade: “No one is irreplaceable, but Antoine is indispensable.”

The player said this accolade from the coach was “a huge source of pride”, but he recognizes it puts “a bit of pressure” on him.

“We have to get this confidence back, we are going to play an exceptional match, we have to give this dream to all the French kids,” said the French second captain, with 130 international caps and 44 goals.

The 33-year-old footballer, who plays as a midfielder but also acts as a defensive midfielder with great display, should see more of the competitive area with the potential loss of Mbappé.

The first captain broke his nose trying to score against Austria at Dusseldorf.

– Giroud, Durham, Kolo Mwani… –

After training with a Band-Aid on Wednesday, Mbappé appeared on Thursday wearing a mask with the colors of the French flag (blue, white and red).

During Thursday afternoon's first 15-minute training session in Leipzig, during which the media was allowed in, the Bleus captain was seen trying to adjust his mask, but went through physical exercises with the rest of the squad.

It was the first time Mbappé wore the mask, which had his initials (KM) written on it and a rooster, one of France's symbols, painted on it.

However, as Article 42 of the UEFA regulations states that only medical equipment “with the same colour” can be worn on the pitch and “it shall not carry any identification with the equipment”, Bandy's scorer cannot play with this mask. “.

Deschamps insisted that Mbappé's recovery was progressing “in the right direction” and that they would do “everything possible to make him available” to play against the Dutch on Friday.

“The nose is less swollen. We will decide at the last moment based on their feelings,” the coach said.

The new Real Madrid player is showing his usual determination. He likes to play early, as evidenced by his message to his 118 million followers on Instagram: “There are no victories without risks.”

“I always said, the team is stronger with Kylian. If the news is not right, we will fight without him. “Kylian is Kylian, no matter what team he is in,” Deschamps declared after the win over Austria.

– “We will see him with a mask” –

Starting from this principle, there is no replacement for the new Real Madrid star, although the coach has three options for the center forward position: the French team's all-time top scorer (57 goals), Marcus Duram or trust again. Hopeless Randall Kolo Mwani's chance.

“When we look at the guys on the bench, we have the means to replace Kylian,” midfielder Adrien Rabiot announced on Wednesday.

The Netherlands, who came back against Poland (2-1) in the quarter-finals of the last World Cup and on the first day, are preparing for the match with Mbappé in front.

“I think he will be fine physically and we will see him with the mask on Friday. He is a great player and we have to believe this,” said midfielder Tijjani Reynders.

The Orange knows what it's like to have a striker in front of you. In the last two clashes between the two teams, in March (4-0) and October (2-1) 2023, Mbappé scored four times in qualifying for the Euro Cup.

On Monday, before breaking his nose, he made the play and pass that an Austrian defender scored in his own goal.
