Kylian Mbappé to miss three weeks after suffering hamstring injury in PSG win where he missed two penalties

    Mbappé was almost the World Cup hero for France, scoring a hat-trick in the final.

    (CNN)Kylian Mbappé missed two penalties and an open goal in the space of 100 seconds before coming off injured in Paris Saint-Germain's 3-1 win against Montpelier.

    Just seven minutes into the game, PSG was awarded a penalty for a foul on defender Sergio Ramos, but Mbappé -- who converted three penalties in the World Cup final seven weeks ago -- saw his shot saved by Benjamin Lecomte.
    Mbappé had his blushes spared when VAR spotted that Lecomte had stepped off his line before the shot and ordered a retake. But Lecomte guessed correctly again, tipping Mbappé's penalty onto the post. The rebounding ball went straight to the PSG forward but he volleyed over from six yards.
      Things went from bad to worse for the Parisians when, shortly after, Mbappé pulled up holding his hamstring and had to be substituted off.
        A club statement on Thursday confirmed that Mbappé will be out for approximately three weeks, meaning he will likely miss PSG's crunch tie in the Champions League against German giant Bayern Munich. Sergio Ramos is also a doubt after picking up a knock.
        Adding to his embarrassment, Mbappé was overtaken in the top scorer charts in Ligue 1 by Reims striker Folarin Balogun who himself scored against PSG at the weekend to deny the Parisians a win.
