France’s Kingsley Coman suffering from muscular pain

L’Équipe are reporting that France’s Kingsley Coman (26) is suffering from muscular pain, and therefore didn’t participate in the entirety of France’s training session today. 

According to L’Équipe, Coman participated in the warm-up before heading back to the dressing rooms. His absence from collective training was reportedly planned, and the France doctors are managing the niggle. RMC Sport report that Coman experienced muscular discomfort during Les Bleus’ friendly match against Qatari top division side Al-Markhiya, which took place yesterday. 

The match was organised in order to give fitness and playing time to those who either didn’t participate at all in the World Cup opener against Australia or for those who only played a limited part. Bayern Munich winger Coman came on for Didier Deschamps’ side as a second-half substitute in a comfortable 4-1 victory. 

It is currently unclear whether Coman will be fit for France’s second group-stage game. Les Bleus face Denmark on Saturday.
