Two midfielders in the French National team have tested positive for COVID-19.
The two, Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Tottenham Hotspurs’ Tanguy Ndombele have since been taken out of the France Squad following the outcome of their results.
Pogba has since been replaced by Rennes teenage sensation Eduardo Camavinga in the French squad, which also features uncapped duo Houssem Aouar and Dayot Upamecano.
Pogba and Ndombele are said to be in self isolation and will be tested again after 14 days.
This will be a big blow to their domestic clubs as it gives the players little time to prepare for the new Premier League season in a few weeks.
“I had to make a last-minute change to this list, because Paul Pogba was planned to be in this list but unfortunately for him, he took a test [for Covid-19] yesterday which turned out to be positive today, so at the last minute he was replaced by Eduardo Camavinga,” said France manager Didier Deschamps.
France travel to Sweden on September 5 before hosting Croatia three days later.
