The Brazilian was forced off the pitch with a groin problem during his nation's global friendly against Cameroon at Stadium MK.

After rushing through on goal Mbappe jumped over 'keeper Martin Campana but landed awkwardly on his right shoulder, with Florian Thauvin taking his place on 36 minutes.

"He has a sore shoulder, he's fallen badly".

The club revealed that Neymar has suffered a groin strain, whilst Mbappe has been diagnosed with a bruised right shoulder.

As it happened for Brazil and France, both secured 1-0 wins over Cameroon and Uruguay respectively, in spite of the injuries to the star duo.

Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said: "He felt discomfort".


PSG now sit third in Group C, just one point behind second-placed Liverpool.

Neymar played down his injury, saying in an Instagram message that "it was nothing serious".

Everton forward Richarlison scored the only goal of the game just before half time to keep Brazil's flawless record after the World Cup and ensure they end the year on a high.

"He was evaluated and he has already started treatment, but will need a little bit more time to have a better assessment, with a scan, but initially it doesn't seem like an important injury".

France won thanks to Olivier Giroud's 52nd-minute penalty.

While signs for his availability for the potentially make-or-break Liverpool match are positive, a source told ESPN FC he is likely to miss PSG's Ligue 1 match against Toulouse on Saturday.
