France’s Nkunku set to miss world cup due to injury
France forward Christopher Nkunku has been ruled out of the World Cup after sustaining a leg injury in training yesterday.
The 25-year-old is the Bundesliga’s top scorer with 12 goals in 15 games for RB Leipzig.
He appeared to be caught by a challenge from Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.
Nkunku is the latest on a list of high-profile absentees for defending champions France, which includes midfielders Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante and defender Prisnel Kimpembe.
