The attacker is currently in Japan with Eintracht and will arrive with the national team in Doha on Thursday morning. The newspaper “L’Equipe” and the radio station RMC had previously reported that Kolo Muani should join the world champion’s team. The Frankfurt attacker has had two short appearances in the national team so far.

Christopher Nkunku was injured on Tuesday. In a duel with his teammate Eduardo Camavinga (Real Madrid), the Bundesliga striker, who is currently the best with twelve goals, sprained his left knee, the French football association said after radiological examinations late Tuesday evening.

Leipzig regrets Nkunku’s World Cup exit

“Get well soon, Christo! This news hurts,” RB Leipzig tweeted immediately after the news from France’s World Cup quarters: “We are with you and know that you will come back stronger!” Nkunku’s RB teammate Timo Werner will also miss the World Cup due to injury.

Nkunku has made eight appearances for the national team, with two assists. The fast and technically highly talented attacker was planned as a backup player under coach Didier Deschamps. The competition, especially up front, is fierce for the Equipe Tricolore.
