He is expected to finish the tournament in Germany wearing a special protective mask.

However, Deschamps in a chat with TribalFootball, stated that Mbappe will be available for the last game.

“Kylian’s condition is improving every day. If we were playing a decisive game I would probably think differently, but it was wiser to leave him on the bench,” Deschamps said.

“We certainly didn’t bluff in any way. It would have been a risk, this way we got extra time,” added the 2018 world champions’ coach.

  • A coach who knows what he is doing will look out for his players health and career. He will not demand his players to ”manage to play” at the risk of their career or put them in the arms way.

      Hahahahaha…..like one coach that needs Osimhen before he can avoid a loss to Benin republic on a neutral ground….LMAOoo.

      • LOL….Abi o….Second base jare!!!!….Let’s move forward… Dr Drey, do you think we can get and afford Havre Renard?…and if we can (I think we can if the Federal Govt will assist), do you think Havre will come due to the fact that he will not be free until after the Olympics and also, his coming will be like walking into a trap of failing to qualify for the World Cup which is not of his making. I am asking this question about Havre because I think he is the best we can go for at this point.

          Oyinbo coaches are thorough bred professionals. They don’t just walk into any type of job out of desperation.

          A certain Paul Lè Guen refused to take the SE job when he was tasked with qualifying a team ranked 16th in Africa and 70th in the world for both the world cup and the semifinals of the next AFCON despite not qualifying for back to back AFCONs.

          Renhard will definitely not want to stain his records with a mission impossible type of job….that is even if we can afford to paying him $300k per month

          • That is just it…out of four games, drew three and lost one and we are hoping on a miracle to win six from six games and pray for other teams to drop points….It is possible in the world of football but the chances are slim and remote with our situation right now, even with the best coach in the world…. Not with this NFF….
