LEIPZIG, Germany (AP) — Kylian Mbappé has been left out of France’s starting lineup for its European Championship clash with the Netherlands. He was named among the substitutes.

Mbappé hadn’t been certain to start on Friday after breaking his nose on Monday in the opening 1-0 win over Austria.

Mbappé trained wearing a face mask on Thursday and coach Didier Deschamps sounded optimistic that his star forward would be able to play.

But Deschamps evidently decided it was not worth the risk to start him against the physical Dutch defenders.
