According to a source close to the Blues who spoke with AFP, all twenty-four members of the France national team participated in the collective training session that was scheduled for Wednesday, three days before their World Cup quarterfinal match against England. This included Kylian Mbappé, who had missed the previous day’s session. The meeting was held at the Jassim-bin-Hamad stadium in Doha, Qatar, with the doors to the facility kept closed.
Two days after the round of 16 win against Poland, a match played entirely by the 23-year-old world champion, Mbappé remained in the room for “classic” recovery work on Tuesday evening, the day after a full day of rest, according to the coaching staff. Mbappé is the current world champion and was crowned in 2017. Every single one of the other holders had contributed a little bit to the cleaning. The lack of coverage regarding the striker for Paris SG in the English media is something that has garnered a lot of attention.
“It was a brief opportunity for rest and relaxation. A day off had been provided for us the day before. At a news conference on Wednesday, defender Ibrahima Konaté attempted to allay concerns about the situation by saying, “I suppose he decided to stay indoors with the coach, there is nothing to worry about.” The match between France and England will take place on Saturday evening at 8:00 in al-Khor.
