PARIS (Reuters) – Midfielder Paul Pogba was replaced by Matteo Guendouzi in the France squad to face Albania and Andorra in Euro 2020 Group H qualifiers after picking up an ankle injury, the French federation said on Monday.
The Manchester United player’s absence earns Arsenal’s Guendouzi, 20, his first call-up by coach Didier Deschamps.
World champions France host Albania on Saturday and Andorra three days later.
Les Bleus are top of Group H with nine points from four games.
