Mbappe back in training for France

Kylian Mbappe will be back in France training for a closed session tonight.

He underwent a recovery routine on Tuesday evening while the rest of the squad had a light session on the grass.

France defender Ibrahima Konate said: "We haven’t really spoken about it at all. He was just resting yesterday.

"He had a different kind of training session to do. There was nothing worrying about that. Nothing surprising either."

VVD: I don't worry about Argentina

Netherlands defender Virgil van Dijk speaking about the prospect of lifting a World Cup trophy and facing Argentina:

"There is hunger. There are dreams. There is a feeling that you anticipate a world cup [win].

"In the quarters, you are only three games away from glory. We are in this position right now. We want to perform - hopefully that means success. We want to enjoy our opportunity.

"I don't worry [about Argentina's attacking threats], I'm very conscious of what Argentina can bring. They are a fantastic team. We have to be very good in all departments."

Walker: I don't underestimate myself in Mbappe battle


Kyle Walker discusses how to handle the strain of the Mbappe competition:

"Do I understand the focus on the battle? Of course I do, I play football.

"I understand what I need to do and that is obviously to stop him. It's probably easier said than done.

"But I don't underestimate myself. As I said before, I've played him before and come up against great players in my time playing for England, Man City and the clubs I have played for.

"I have to treat it as another game. I have to take extra care and give him the respect he deserves, but not too much respect because he is also playing England and we can cause him problems.

"It is going to be a tough game, but not one player makes a team."
