Midfielder Paul Pogba was replaced by Matteo Guendouzi in the France squad to face Albania and Andorra in Euro 2020 Group H qualifiers after picking up an ankle injury.
The disclosure was made on Monday by the French Federation Federation.
The Manchester United player’s absence earns Arsenal’s 20-year-old Guendouzi his first call-up by coach Didier Deschamps.
World champions France host Albania on Saturday and Andorra three days later.
Les Bleus are top of Group H with nine points from four games.
