Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has withdrawn from the France squad due to a thigh injury he sustained during training on Monday.
The French Football Federation confirmed that he will miss the World Cup qualifying matches against Kazakhstan and Finland.
The French professional footballer received the suspension for being sent off during the 5-0 home defeat by Liverpool on 24 October.
The French Football Federation said the 28-year-old was the “victim of an injury to the quadriceps of the right thigh”.
Recall that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already without a number of players because of injury.
Pogba’s international team-mate Raphael Varane is out with a hamstring injury, forward Edinson Cavani missed last Saturday’s defeat by Manchester City, while Luke Shaw was substituted in the same match after a blow to the head.
Shaw is following concussion protocol and did not link up with the England squad on Monday.
France needs one win from their remaining two games to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
