Posted by

France and Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe has tested positive for Covid-19. Mbappe who is asymptomatic, has left the national team squad and will not feature for Les Bleus in their forthcoming Nations League fixture with Croatia in Paris on Tuesday, a match in which he was expected to form a forward trident along with Wissam Ben Yedder and Anthony Martial. The forward scored the only goal in their last match against Sweden and was hoping to shine again.

“Like the entire delegation, Kylian Mbappe had undergone a test prior to the games of the international break. The result was negative, like the one last Wednesday, at the request of UEFA, before Sweden against France.” The situation has thrown doubt into his immediate participation when PSG finally start their Ligue 1 campaign. The Thomas Tuchel’s side are slated to play Lens on Thursday followed by Le Classique against fierce rivals Marseille on Sunday. After That, they will then face Metz next Wednesday and have a trip to Nice slated for September 20.
