Rennes’ teenage sensation Eduardo Camavinga, 17, has been handed his debut senior call-up to replace the two absentees.
Didier Deschamps, the France head coach, said in a press conference: “I’ve completed at the very last minute a change in the list, because Paul Pogba, who was previously on the list, unfortunately for him he carried out a test yesterday which was returned as positive this morning.
“So at the last moment he had to be replaced by Eduardo Camavinga.”
Manchester United released their own statement on Pogba’s positive test.
“Pogba has been replaced in the squad after testing positive for Covid-19,” read the statement.
“The midfielder will be unable to add to his 69 caps and 10 goals for his country in the games next month.
“Everybody at United wishes Paul a speedy recovery ahead of the new season.”
