Mbappé leaves France squad after calf issue

The FFF has confirmed that Kylian Mbappé will depart the France squad due to a calf injury he sustained in last night's 1-1 draw with Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Equipe de France confirmation

The 22-year-old had been through testing on Thursday morning that found no injuries, but he was still in discomfort.

Didier Deschamps will not call up a replacement for the Paris Saint-Germain star, according to L'Équipe, because the round of Covid-19 testing required to travel for Saturday's play against Ukraine was completed this morning.

Mbappé will miss Les Bleus' second qualifier of the international break, which will be conducted in Kyiv, as well as Tuesday's match in Lyon against Finland.
