Matteo Guendouzi gets first senior France call-up

Didier Deschamps has decided to give 20-year-old Matteo Guendouzi a call-up to the senior French national team for upcoming EURO 2020 qualifiers against Albania and Andorra.

The decision comes after Paul Pogba was forced to withdraw from proceedings after undergoing scans in Manchester this morning on his ankle.

It is currently unclear as to how long Pogba will be out of action for. Lucas Tousart (Lyon) may feel hard done to by Deschamps’ decision to overlook him in this instance.
