Mbappé's World Cup debut in jeopardy due to nasty tackle - Video

One of the rising stars of the upcoming FIFA World Cup gave France quite a scare during today's training session, as he had to leave the pitch limping due to a nasty tackle by Adil Rami.

Mbappé fell immediately to the ground following Rami's tackle, who thought his team-mate hadn't been seriously injured. Moments after he saw Mbappé experiencing quite a deal of pain, Rami called for the team's doctors.

France is set to make their debut against Australia on Saturday evening, but now, Mbappé is a major question mark in Didier Deschamps' lineup.

Here's how Mbappé picked up this untimely injury.

Later today, Mbappé erased rumors of a serious injury. Nevertheless, the team's medical staff will determine his availability for Saturday's clash.

"I'm OK. It's just a hit so it doesn't matter, but thank you for your messages. And let my friend Adil Rami know he wasn't so mean."
