France manager Didier Deschamps said the midfielder had been replaced after he tested positive on 26 August.

“Unfortunately he tested positive yesterday and this morning I replaced him with Camavinga,” he said.

The Manchester United midfielder will therefore miss out on France’s first international games since November 17.

International fixtures – notably Euro 2020 – were cancelled or postponed in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
