The France National Football Team has been struggling throughout the UEFA Euro 2024 tournament. The 2022 World Cup Finalists failed to score an open goal so far in the competition so far with own goals from the opposition helping them the most in Euro 2024. Considered one of the favourites for the UEFA Euro 2024 title, the side managed just three goals in five matches. Injury to star player and captain Kylian Mbappe, who missed one group stage match against the Netherlands National Football Team also hampered their route to the finals.

Even though the French side struggled offensively, they have been very solid in their defences with Arsenal defender William Saliba marshalling the defence line for Didier Deshchamp’s side. But to advance to the next level, the side needs their offence to deliver. With Griezmann’s current form, France's football team will be heavily dependent on Kylian Mbappe to give them some firepower in the matchups.

Will Kylian Mbappe Play in Spain vs France UEFA Euro 2024 Semifinal Match?

The Spain National Football Team is one of the most consistent and offensive sides in the UEFA euro 2024 competition. They outshined the hosts Germany with an immaculate performance in the knock-out game. Stars like Olmo, Yamal, and Rodri have been their top performers but the side is getting heavy production from their other stars also. Here is the possibility of Kylian Mbappe’s availability amid the injury concerns and how he can help France to advance to the second consecutive final of the FIFA major tournament.  Spain vs France, UEFA Euro 2024 Semi-Final Preview: Dominant La Roja Look To Move Past Struggling Les Bleus.

Luckily for the France National Football Team, despite taking a blow in the opening match of the UEFA Euro 2024 tournament, Kylian Mbappe returned to the lineup with the mask. Even though he is not at his best, considering the standards ‘the turtle’ has set for himself, he has delivered heavily at the offensive end for the French side. We can expect him to play a vital role right from the start against the Spain National Football Team. Injury to Pedri, the absence of Dani Carvajal, and the defensive solidity of the French team would help Mbappe to thrive against the ‘soft’ Spanish side.
