France begin the defence of their World Cup title against Australia in Qatar on November 22.

“Presnel Kimpembe will not be available for about six weeks. A new assessment will be made in eight days," PSG said in a statement.

The injury also rules the 28-times capped Kimpembe out of PSG’s Champions League group stage matches.

The French side face Maccabi Haifa in Israel on Wednesday after making a winning start against Juventus in their first game.

Kimpembe is one of several key France stars sidelined through injury as the World Cup approaches.
