France national team coach Didier Deschamp has called up Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi to replace injured Manchester United star Paul Pogba in France’s squad.

Naija News reports that the Les Blues, as the France team is fondly called, will take on Albania and Andorra in a Euro 2020 qualifying game.

Guendouzi has had an impressive since the start of the 2019/2020 Premier League season, starting all four of Arsenal’s matches in the Premier League.

The 20-year-old produced an outstanding performance in the Gunners’ 2-2 draw with Tottenham on Sunday.

The youngster has nine caps for France’s Under-21s but has never been called up to the senior side.

Though Pogba played 90 minutes of Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Southampton, he has been forced to withdraw from Didier Deschamps’ squad with an ankle injury.
