BREAKING: Pogba tests positive for coronavirus
Paul Pogba has been left out of the latest France squad after returning positive a coronavirus test.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been left out of the France squad after testing positive for coronavirus, Didier Deschamps has confirmed.
The 27-year-old was due to be included in the squad to face Sweden and Croatia in the Nations League next month.
However, head coach Deschamps revealed Pogba returned a positive test at short notice and Rennes teenager Eduardo Camavinga took his place in the squad.
“At the last minute, we had to make a change to the list because Paul Pogba had been on the list but, unfortunately for him, he took a test yesterday that came back positive this morning,” Deschamps told reporters on Thursday.
“So, at the last minute, he was replaced by Eduardo Camavinga.”
