Project Russia: Mbappe shines for France (4:20)

France's Kylian Mbappe outshone Lionel Messi in the round of 16 as France beat Argentina 4-3 in episode 18 of Project Russia. (4:20)

France full-back Djibril Sidibe limped out of training on Sunday with a possible ankle injury in a setback to the side ahead of this week's World Cup quarterfinal against Uruguay.

France had already lost full-back Benjamin Mendy for the round-of-16 clash against Argentina because of a small muscle injury. Mendy also missed training on Sunday.

If Sidibe is ruled out, coach Didier Deschamps will be left with only two options for the quarterfinal clash -- Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard -- though defender Presnel Kimpembe can also play at full-back.

Sidibe has just recovered from a knee injury which forced him to lose his place in the France lineup to Pavard.
