Is It a French Football Fiesta This Season?

The foot­ball world was sent into chaos this year when France came out tops in the FIFA World Cup. You can’t argue that the team brought its A‑Game this year – the stat­ist­ics speak for them­selves. Amongst the top teams, it also had the dubi­ous hon­our of get­ting the highest num­ber of yel­low cards, but over­all, it proved that it had mastered the art of fancy foot­work.

If you want more inform­a­tion on the full stat­ist­ics, the infograph­ic bel­low by will fill in the oth­er details.

While all the play­ers did an excel­lent job, it was clear that Kyli­an Mbappe was hav­ing the tour­na­ment of his life. The 19-year-old scored a total of three goals, one of which he scored dur­ing the final. It looks like the play­er con­sidered one of the most expens­ive trans­fers in the world is worth every cent of the €180 mil­lion that was paid over when he trans­ferred from Monaco to PSG.

That the play­er is well-settled with his new team is clear, and his future does look bright. Unfor­tu­nately, just a few days ago he was injured in a friendly match against Uruguay. We covered it in this post, so you can get the full details there.

It’s a blow for the team, espe­cially since Mbappe has scored a total of 15 goals between club and inter­na­tion­al matches this sea­son. At this point, the team has con­firmed that the shoulder injury is ser­i­ous, but they say that he’ll need a full med­ic­al workup before they know for sure how bad the injury is and how long he’s going to be out of action for.

The team has dealt with anoth­er ser­i­ous set­back when Ney­mar injured his adduct­or muscle just a few minutes into the match between Brazil and Cameroon. Fans hop­ing to see the play­er put in a full game were bit­terly dis­ap­poin­ted as it was just six minutes into the game that he had to go off due to the injury.

He was looked over by the Brazili­an team doc­tor who said that the injury was, in prin­ciple, not all that ser­i­ous. The doc­tor did, how­ever, say that Ney­mar suffered some dis­com­fort, and that the injury would have to be prop­erly eval­u­ated to determ­ine how extens­ive it was.

Over­all, for PSG fans it hasn’t been a great week and it’s one that ended on a rel­at­ively uncer­tain note. With the two-star play­ers nurs­ing injur­ies, it looks like PSG has a tough time ahead of it. Wheth­er it’ll end its sea­son on a high note is ser­i­ously in ques­tion now, espe­cially since it failed to make it to the finals of the Nation­al League.

Will the two top play­ers recov­er fully and be able to fin­ish off the sea­son? If we take the com­ments of Brazil’s team doc­tor to heart, it does look as though we could see Ney­mar back on the field again soon. But with injur­ies like this, who’s to say? If you’re a PSG fan, you’ll need to send out a silent pray­er that Ney­mar and Mbappe’s injur­ies are not as ser­i­ous as they seem.
