Pogba pulls out of France squad with ankle injury

Paul Pogba has withdrawn from the France squad for their upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers with an ankle injury.

The Manchester United midfielder played the full 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw at Southampton on Saturday but was pictured limping out of St Mary’s, and the French Football Federation has announced he will take no part in the matches against Albania and Andorra.

The FFF posted a tweet wishing Pogba a speedy recovery, while announcing uncapped Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi as his replacement.

The seriousness of the injury is yet to be determined and United are unsure whether Pogba will be fit to face Leicester on September 14.
