PARIS (Reuters) - Le milieu de terrain français Paul Pogba a été exclu de son équipe pour les matches de la Ligue des Nations le mois prochain après avoir été testé positif au COVID-19, a déclaré jeudi l'entraîneur Didier Deschamps.

Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga was called up as a late replacement for Manchester United’s Pogba.

“I had to make a last minute change on this list because Paul Pogba was scheduled to be on this list,” Deschamps told reporters.

“But unfortunately for him, he passed a test yesterday (for COVID-19) which turned out positive today, so at the last minute he was replaced by Eduardo Camavinga. ”

France will travel to Sweden on September 5 and host Croatia three days later.
