L’Équipe report that France defender Raphaël Varane will miss the next international break through an injury picked up in Manchester United’s match against Atalanta.
Having been taken off before half-time in his club’s fourth Champions League group stage tie, which would end a 2-2 draw, tests today have revealed the hamstring injury.
The World Cup winner is expected to be out for three to four weeks, and as a result will miss the November international break. Les Bleus will play two 2022 World Cup qualifiers, against Kazakhstan and Finland, with a win in either game securing their ticket for Qatar.
Varane had also suffered an adductor injury last month during the Nations League final against Spain.
