There was more bad news for France yesterday when 23-year-old Mbappe missed training with a suspected ankle injury, sparking fears he could miss the quarter-finals.

Sunman Joe Hadden evaded security at Paris’s Grevin Museum yesterday to adorn the striker’s effigy with a Three Lions scarf and hat, with a St George’s flag wrapped around his waist.

English expats in Paris said Mbappe’s Three Lions makeover matched the £250m PSG striker, who has already scored five goals in the tournament.

Property developer Kyle Bridges, 37, who has lived in the French capital for the past two years, said: “This is brilliant work from The Sun. They gave us loads of stick so we have to give it back to them.”

Bugsy’s bartender Luke Blackford, 23, added: “Great of the sun to do it on their own soil. He looks better than ever in an England scarf.”

They were also confident in England’s chances of reaching the semi-finals, helped by players who have played in foreign leagues including Jude Bellingham, Eric Dier and Kieran Trippier.

Kyle, who was The Bowler in English Boozer, said: “We’re going to smash them, I have absolutely no doubt about that.

“The players know how much this game means to the fans.

“Guys like Bellingham, Dier and Trippier have played abroad.

“You know what it’s like to be the only Englishman in the room.

“There’s an understanding among these guys of what it means to be English that we’ve never seen before.”

Luke also believes they can beat the reigning world champion, although he fears the aftermath regardless of the result in Qatar.

He said: “We will beat them 2-1. My French buddies think they will win but I can’t imagine it.

“In any case, France is the worst country for that to happen – if we win they won’t be happy and if they beat us they’ll be even more condescending.”

Mbappe became the youngest person to be immortalized in wax figures when the Grevin Museum unveiled his statue in 2018, assisted by the man himself.

The forward is one of the fastest players in the world at around 23.6mph.

However, if he does play, he is likely to face speedy England defender Kyle Walker, who has reached a speed of 23.5mph.

Cristiano Ronaldo was ruled out for Portugal’s round of 16 game against Switzerland last night after being unhappy being substituted in the last game against South Korea.
