Mbappe Set For First PSG Appearance After World Cup

Published

Kylian Mbappe, France winger and winner of the Young Player Award in the just concluded 2018 World Cup in Russia, has been listed among the Paris Saint-Germain’s squad for the first time this season, as the French team go head to head with Guingamp in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

PSG’s 3-0 victory over Caen last weekend, did not have Mbappe feature, obviously because the youngster just got back for training after his post-world cup holiday.

Mbappe who would play alongside Neymar in the PSG attack in Brittany, scored one of France’s goals in their 4-2 win over Croatia in last month’s final in Moscow.

However, Edinson Cavani is again missing as he continues his recovery from a calf injury suffered during Uruguay’s run to the quarter-finals in Russia.

Also named in PSG’s squad is Thilo Kehrer, the Germany under-21 defender who completed a reported 37 million-euro ($42.3 million) move to the French capital from Schalke on Thursday, signing a five-year deal.
