Kylian Mbappe smashes fan in the face during warm up for France vs Morocco semifinal

3 Min Read

Kylian Mbappe raced to the aid of a France fan after accidentally hitting him with a wayward shot before their World Cup semi-final win over Morocco.

The Paris Saint-Germain star was testing his shooting boots during the warm-up ahead of the crunch clash at the Al Bayt Stadium.

But one of his attempts to get his range resulted in him booting the ball square in the face of a Les Bleus fan, The Sun reports.

The unlucky fan was badly dazed by the powerful strike and grabbed his nose to see if it had been bloodied.

Fox Sports’ Jenny Taft tweeted: “Spoke to the French fan, he suffered a bloody nose and told me if France wins it will all be worth it! (He is also hoping Mbappé will give him his jersey after the match).”
