Paris Saint- Germain striker Kylian Mbappe has been dropped from France squad after he tested positive for coronavirus.
The French Football Federation (FFF) said Mbappe returned a negative result before meeting up with the France squad.
A statement from the FFF read: “Kylian Mbappé will not participate in France-Croatia, Tuesday evening at 8:45 p.m. at the Stade de France.
“The result of his Covid-19 test, carried out by UEFA on Monday morning, was found to be positive, he was placed away from the group after receiving the results, at the end of training, before regaining his home in the evening.
”Like the entire delegation, Kylian Mbappé had undergone a test prior to meeting. The result was negative, like the one last Wednesday, at the request of UEFA.”
This is another blow for PSG as six players, including Neymar, have tested positive for coronavirus ahead of the new season.
Meanwhile, Mbappe scored the winning goal in a 1-0 win away at Sweden on Saturday.
