Kylian Mbappe will take part in France’s friendly against South Africa on Tuesday after recovering from an ENT infection, coach Didier Deschamps has confirmed.

The forward missed the world champions’ 2-1 win over Ivory Coast in Marseille when Olivier Giroud netted his 47th international goal, which put the AC Milan striker four shy of Thierry Henry’s all-time France scoring record.

“He is much better, he will be there on Tuesday,” Deschamps told French TV channel TF1.

He did not specify whether Mbappe would start the game.
