Pogba tests positive for coronavirus and will not go with France

The Manchester United midfielder was replaced at the last minute by Eduardo Camavinga for Les Bleus matches against Sweden and Croatia


Paul Pogba has been the main absence from Didier Deschamps' list for the matches that the French team will face against Sweden (September 5, 8:45 pm) and Croatia (September 8, 8:45 pm). The Manchester United midfielder has been diagnosed positive for coronavirus late in the morning and has not been able to enter the call of the French coach.

His place has been taken by Eduardo Camavinga, who was originally going to be on the U21 list, but Pogba's positive has forced Deschamps to introduce the 17-year-old Rennes midfielder for the first time in an absolute call-up . Pogba has not been with Les Bleus for more than a year, since in the last lists he could not attend due to injury.

The absence of Pogba has opened the doors of the call to players like Eduardo Camavinga or Houssem Aouar. The Lyon team was not the only surprise for Deschamps, as Dayot Upamecano has also been called up by the former Monaco coach after his great performance in the Champions League.
