After sustaining a knee injury during Tuesday night's 4-1 victory over Australia, Lucas Hernandez has been ruled out of France's World Cup run.


Australia took an early lead in the sixth minute, forcing Didier Deschamps' team to come from behind. However, the defending World Cup champions went on to dominate the majority of the match with goals from Olivier Giroud (2), Adrien Rabiot (3), and Kylian Mbappe (4).


Hernandez's forced departure from the game with a knee injury came in the 13th minute, dealing France a setback. His younger brother Theo, an AC Milan defender, took over the defensive position for the Bayern Munich defender.


Following an MRI exam, Hernandez was found to have anterior cruciate ligament damage, which has caused him to miss the remainder of France's campaign in Qatar.

Deschamps stated, "Like the entire group, players and staff, I am sincerely sad for Lucas.


"We are removing a crucial component." Being a warrior, Lucas will try everything in his power to get back in the game. I am aware of him well, and I am confident that he possesses courage. I wish him the greatest recovery possible on our behalf.
