Bacary Sagna & Paul Pogba out of the French national team

Manchester duo Bacary Sagna and Paul Pogba have both withdrawn from this week’s French national squad which is due to face Luxembourg in a World Cup 2018 qualifier and Spain in a friendly during this international break.

Sagna and Pogba suffered injuries which prevent them from meeting up with the squad in Clairefontaine today.

Instead, Lyon right-back Christophe Jallet has been called up, alongside newcomer and AS Monaco central midfielder Tiemoué Bakayoko to replace them.
