Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed that both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe suffered injuries during the global break and will be assessed by the club in the next 48 hours, ahead of the crucial Champions League clash with Liverpool.

The 19-year-old was withdrawn before half time in France's 1-0 friendly win against Uruguay when the forward fell awkwardly on his right shoulder after a challenge by Uruguay goalkeeper Marin Campana.

PSG's night then got even worse as fellow star forward Mbappe picked up what appeared to be a very painful shoulder injury as France took on Uruguay in their friendly at the Stade de France.

Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said: "He felt discomfort".

Thanks to all who sent me messages wishing me a good recovery, I think it was nothing serious.

On Wednesday, PSG announced that Mbappe has a bruised shoulder, while scans on Neymar showed a right adductor strain.
