WC 2018: Blow for France as Mbappe suffers injury

France’s Antoine Griezmann during training

Kylian Mbappe has assured France fans he is "fine" after being forced to leave their first World Cup training session in Russian Federation after a blow to the ankle in a clash with team-mate Adil Rami.

The 18-year-old came off worse in a challenge with defender Rami and stayed down for several minutes, receiving treatment from physios before trudging off the training pitch to have his injury assessed.

Kylian Mbappe has eased fears he suffered a serious injury just two days before the start of the 2018 World Cup. "It will be treated, and it will go away".

After scoring 21 goals and registering 16 assists in 46 games in a domestic treble-winning season with Paris Saint-Germain, his suspected ankle injury raised a real cause for concern within France media.

However, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) said that shape trademarks do not apply to Louboutin's red sole. Under EU law it was argued companies can not trademark common shapes such as the soles of shoes.

The incident left Rami red-faced, with France opening up their World Cup campaign in Russian Federation on Saturday, when they play Australia at 11am BST.

"I believe in this group and in the important moments we'll all be there". I feel comfy in the system and I'm close to (manager, Didier) Deschamps.

Griezmann said: "We know it will be hard, but we have the squad and the dressing room to achieve something big".
