Nation League. Mbappe’s injury overshadows France’s loss and Rangnick appears for the first time with Austria | football

In Group A of the Nations League, France, the world champions and holders of the Nations League, suffered a defeat at the Stade de France in the opening match against Denmark on Friday night. The match ended with a score of 1-2.

Halfway through, neither team found their way into the net. To make matters worse, the Blues had to continue without gold medalist Kylian Mbappe after the break. He stayed in the locker room with a left knee injury.

Christopher Nkunko, Mbappe’s replacement, helped score the opening goal for Karim Benzema (51). But this goal was not enough to win: Andreas Cornelius (68) equalized for the visitors, as Brugge player Andreas Skov Olsen was in the team for 84 minutes. In the penultimate minute of normal time, Cornelius (89.) completely stunned the host with his second goal of the evening. Help came from former Genk player Joachim Mahle.

And in the other match in the group, Ralf Rangnick made the start of his dream with Austria at the stadium of Vice World Champion Croatia (0-3). Marko Arnautovic (41.) broke the spell a few minutes after the break signal, and Michael Grigorić (54.) and Marcel Sabitzer (57.) deepened further.
