  • Kylian Mbappe breaks silence on injury scare ahead of World Cup

Kylian Mbappe suffered a major shock ahead of the FIFA World Cup 2018 when he had to leave France's training after sustaining an injury on Tuesday.

Saha won 20 caps for France during his career, and believes that Didier Deschamps' men are one of the favourites to win the competition due to their embarrassment of riches in the final third of the pitch.

However, Pogba is ready for the World Cup, as the French team can compete with anybody. He will have to guide this team, (with) the likes of (Kylian) Mbappe and (Ousmane) Dembele to the next level.

Two MLS players - Andy Polo (Portland) and Yoshimar Yotun (Orlando City) - made Peru's World Cup team, and teammate Raul Ruidiaz might join the Seattle Sounders from Mexico's Morelia in July.

The biggest cheer of the night, when France beat Ireland 2-0 last month in the final warm-up game played in the French capital, the biggest cheer of the night was not to greet the final whistle. The Chelsea man has the legs to cover every blade of grass and his presence will allow Pogba the occasional dribbling runs from deep. While this match may be easy for the French team, they certainly can not overlook it. Let's look at the question marks surrounding the team, and how the starting XI will look when they face Australia in their first group stage game.

Meghan lines up first solo outing with the Queen
But it seems as though Prince Harry's alleged role as Meghan Markle's new stylist have done her little, if any, good. During Kate's Trooping the Colour debut in 2011, she stood in the front, but to the far left of the balcony.

The teenager scored 21 goals in all competitions and also found the back of the net for France over the weekend as they drew 1-1 with United States of America in a warm-up match.

Giroud or Dembele with Griezmann and Mbappe in attack?

France's identity of play remains unclear as Les Bleus prepare to open Group C against Australia in Kazan. The team, led by captain Patrice Evra, responded to Anelka's expulsion by staging a one-day strike.

Mbappé has started each of France's last seven matches, scoring three times.

"Ice packs? No, it is just a knock", Mbappe said according to ESPN.
