In the first match of "Euro 2024", the young striker of Real Madrid Kylian Mbappe suffered an injury. He broke his nose in a collision with defender Kevin Danso in the match against Austria. 

Mbappe did not decide to have surgery, but he will appear in the next matches of France with a mask. In the second match of group D, against the Netherlands, Mbappe was not ready to appear. The 25-year-old is expected to be absent against Poland as well. 

On Sunday, France coach Didier Deschamps said at the press conference that Mbappe's appearance against Poland is not certain.

"You will see if he plays or not, but everything is going in the right direction, he is recovering from the knock, the bruises are getting smaller every day and he will get used to his mask. He is doing well," said Deschamps.

Midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni was also at the press conference who said that Mbappe wants me to play without a mask, but the decision remains with the medical staff.

"I think he wants to play the next match. He may want to play without a mask, but the doctor will not give him the choice," said Tchouameni. 

On Tuesday, France will face Poland in the last match of the group stage in "Euro 2024".
