Duesseldorf: Austria's Kevin Danso sent a message of sympathy on Tuesday to French striker Kylian Mbappe who broke his nose in a collision with the defender's shoulder during their Euro 2024 match.

"I wish him a good recovery and I hope he can quickly get back on the pitch," Danso said on X of the injury sustained during France's 1-0 victory over Austria.

"To French supporters: I am sorry that Kylian Mbappe was injured from our duel," added Danso, whose back was turned when Mbappe's face struck his shoulder.

France's 25-year-old talisman was putting on a brave face, even asking social media followers to suggest ideas for a mask that may enable him to play in France's next game against the Netherlands on Friday.

That sparked a flood of memes online.

France's football federation said Mbappe was back at the team camp after hospital treatment with no need for immediate surgery and a mask was being prepared.
