Brazil and France won today their respective private games 1-0, but the one left with reasons of complaint was Paris Saint-Germain

Paris Saint-Germain came out with reasons to complain because the two 'stars' of the team and of two National teams, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, were injured.

Although the seriousness of the injuries remains unknown, the two influential players may miss PSG match against Liverpool within eight days, which could be decisive for their qualification in group C of the Champions League.

The national team of Brazil faced Cameroon in Milton Keynes, 70 kilometers from London, and won thanks to a goal from Richarlison, Everton's forward, coached by Portuguese Marco Silva. It was precisely Richarlison who replaced Neymar right after the first eight minutes.

The PSG player made a cross and then showed a face of pain, holding his groin, a situation that forced the premature replacement.

The victory of Brazil was undisputed and only disappointed by the scarcity of goals, taking into account the supremacy they evidenced in all the performance chapters of the game, from ball possession and control of game to the shots and goal opportunities.

PSG was twice penalized because Mbappé, who is part of the attacking trio with Neymar and Uruguayan Edinson Cavani, was also injured in the 36th minute when, as he dribbled the Uruguayan goalkeeper, he fell on the pitch with complaints in his right knee that forced his replacement by Florian Thauvin.

Mbappé's injury did not prevent France from beating an ever-complicated adversary like Uruguay, in Paris, thanks to a goal from Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud in a penalty conversion at minute 51. The South American team lined up with their usual and dangerous double striker team, Luis Suarez and Cavani.
