Steve Mandanda withdraws from French national team, tests positive for COVID-19

France and Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda has tested positive for COVID-19 following further testing at the national team’s base at Clairefontaine.

He will return to Marseille tomorrow and play no further role in this international break, in which Les Bleus are due to play against Sweden and Croatia.

This positive test raises questions as to what possible contamination might have occurred with Mandanda’s presence with the 1st team squad over the last 4 days.
