EURO 2024: France starts without Mbappé against Netherlands

The superstar and captain is only sitting on the substitutes’ bench. He broke his nose on Monday. Coach Deschamps is making another important change.

Kylian Mbappé is not in the starting line-up for the French national football team against the Netherlands. Coach Didier Deschamps will initially leave out the 25-year-old attacker in the preliminary round match in Leipzig (9 p.m./ARD and MagentaTV), who broke his nose in the 1-0 opening match against Austria on Monday.

For Mbappé, the deputy captain of the Équipe Tricolore, Antoine Griezmann, will move from midfield to the attack, which this time will probably consist of a double front line together with the former Bundesliga professional Marcus Thuram. In addition, Ousmane Dembélé, who also once played in Germany, will also play a very offensive role.

Aurélien Tchouaméni will be in the starting line-up in midfield. He had been struggling with a foot injury before the European Championship and did not play in the opening match or the last two preparation matches for France. If Mbappé is substituted, he will wear a black protective mask. He himself posted a photo of this on Instagram Story before the match. The mask in the colors of France that Mbappé wore in the final training session is prohibited in matches.
