Pogba tests positive for coronavirus and is not selected in France squad for UEFA Nations League

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been left out of the France squad after testing positive for coronavirus, Didier Deschamps has confirmed.

Pogba has been replaced in Deschamps' squad by Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, while international team mate Tanguy Ndombele of Tottenham Hotspur also misses out after testing positive for Covid-19.

It means Pogba will have to spend 14 days in isolation - meaning he will miss the start of Man United's pre-season preparations, which begin next week following their extended 2019-20 season as they reached the Europa League semi-finals.

He is said to be asymptomatic, however the positive test means Deschamps has no option but to leave out one of his key players for the first set of men's international fixtures played in Europe this calendar year.

France travel to Sweden for their first UEFA Nations League encounter on Friday, September 5, before hosting Croatia in a repeat of the 2018 World Cup final on September 8.
