“I don’t have the elements in my hands, the medical staff is checking him out. He didn’t get off lightly. It’s still to be seen. And at this stage, I can’t answer. I don’t know. That’s the black mark from this evening.”

Now a statement by the French Football Federation confirmed the player will not require surgery but will be provided with a mask to continue with the tournament.
