Uruguay national team striker, Edinson Cavani's participation against France is not certain, according to Uruguayan reports.

Mbappe put in a match-winning performance in the last 16 of the World Cup in Russian Federation as he netted a brace and won a penalty for Les Bleus to help them beat Argentina 4-3 and clinch a place in the quarter-finals.
