Present, Kylian Mbappé did not participate in the training of the Blues

It was under the heat wave (it was still 34 degrees at 6 p.m.) that the Blues began a training session in scattered order on Tuesday. Five players stayed away (Rabiot, Nkunku, Diaby, Kimpembe and Mbappé) but the Parisian striker still came to the edge of the field. Injured in a knee against Denmark, the top scorer of L1 followed the training sitting on a low wall, in the shade and in sneakers. Diaby, Nkunku, Kimpembe and Rabiot cycled indoors.

N’Golo Kanté chained the laps of the stadium with Alexandre Germain, one of the tricolor physiotherapists, before stretching and winning. A group of starters against Croatia (Pavard, Digne, Ben Yedder, Maignan, Tchouaméni, Guendouzi, Saliba) stretched their legs with Cyril Moine, the physical trainer, for half an hour.

Under the orders of Guy Stéphan, and under the gaze of Didier Deschamps, the substitutes of the day before and the players who did not enter (Benzema, Konaté, Kamara, Clauss, Griezmann, Koundé, Coman, Theo and Lucas Hernandez) performed drills in front of goal. Hugo Lloris and Alphonse Areola alternated in goal. They then participated in a small themed opposition on one half of the pitch. Kylian Mbappé, who waited until the end to leave with Karim Benzema, should again be spared against Austria on Friday. The Blues will fly from Split to Vienna this Wednesday after lunch, for training at the Rapid stadium at 6.30 p.m.
