Paul Pogba out of France squad after testing positive for COVID-19
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.
Paul Pogba out of France squad:
France are to play against Sweden on September 5, and then Croatia three days later at the Stade de France as the 2020/2021 Nations League gets underway.
Manchester United said on its website: “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.”
