Paris (dpa) – According to the French Football Association, French star Paul Pogba has been infected with the corona virus and is therefore missing from the national team for the upcoming international matches.
“He did a test yesterday, which unfortunately turned out to be positive this morning,” said national coach Didier Deschamps at the announcement of his selection.
Deschamps was informed in advance about the positive test for Covid-19 with the 27-year-old from Manchester United and nominated Eduardo Camavinga of Stade Rennes for this. Dayot Upamecano from RB Leipzig was added to the tricolor team for the first time. Lucas Hernandez of the three-time winner FC Bayern Munich is also in the selection as Kylian Mbappé of the Champions League finalist PSG.
France will meet Sweden on September 5 in Sölna and Croatia three days later in the Stade de France.
