Pogba and Martial withdraw from France squad through injury as Lacazette recalled

Pogba and Martial withdraw from France squad through injury as Lacazette recalled

The two Manchester United players arrived at France's Clairefontaine training base but were released following assessment by team doctor, Franck Le Gall.

The 27-year-old was left-out of Didier Deschamps' plans when the 23-man party to face Netherland and Uruguay was unveiled last Thursday.

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has returned to Clairefontaine after receiving a recall to France's worldwide squad.

Lacazette has been recalled to his national side after Anthony Martial dropped out due to injury.

Alassane Plea, who has scored eight goals in the Bundesliga for Borussia Monchengladbach this season, has been called up instead.

Lacazette meanwhile has so far collected 16 caps for France, scoring three goals.

However, the withdrawal of Lacazette extends his wait for an worldwide return, with his last outing for his country coming in a friendly against Germany last November.

The Frenchman last played for Les Bleus in November 2017, when he scored a brace in a friendly against Germany, though he was rather surprisingly left out of subsequent squads - including the side that won the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"There is competition in this position and for the moment the players I selected for the World Cup, I continue to rely on them".

Pogba (thigh) and Martial (abductor muscle) are unavailable for Friday's Nation League game against the Netherlands and the friendly against Uruguay on Tuesday - both matches live on Sky Sports.
