Bethel | 95timefm

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.
