Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba tests positive for coronavirus
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has tested positive for coronavirus. He has been left out of France’s squad with Eduardo Camavinga earning a call-up in his place.
Tottenham’s Tanguy Ndombele has also tested positive. Les Bleus take on Sweden and Croatia in the Nations League on their return to action, but will be without the Premier League duo.
Pogba’s United teammate, Anthony Martial, is in the squad. The news comes after several Chelsea stars were forced into isolation after a breakout of Covid-19 derailed their pre-season plans.
Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Fikayo Tomori are among those in isolation, having all recently holidayed in Mykonos.
Blues boss Frank Lampard has begun pre-season at Cobham, but will need to wait to be joined by those players in quarantine.
Abraham and Mount were both named by Gareth Southgate in the England squad for upcoming Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark. Daily Mirror
