Alexandre Lacazette pulls out of France squad two hours after call-up

Alexandre Lacazette Arsenal 2018-19

The French Football Federation (FFF) has announced that Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko and Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette have been called into Didier Deschamps' squad as replacements.

The 27-year-old had only been officially added to the France squad on Monday, after Manchester United's Anthony Martial pulled out with a groin problem.

They also face Uruguay in a friendly four days later.

But two hours later Lacazette also had to withdraw through injury.

Didier Deschamps has lost both Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial from his squad for the games against the Netherlands (UEFA Nations League) and Uruguay (friendly) over the global break.

Olivier Giroud - who was scored one goal in 12 appearances for Chelsea this season - was selected by France.

Manchester City's Benjamin Mendy has joined Lacazette in pulling out of France's concluding games of the year, with Lyon full-back Ferland Mendy recruited for his first senior worldwide call-up.

Lacazette will now be assessed ahead of Arsenal's Premier League fixture at Bournemouth on November 25.

It was Lacazette's first call-up for nearly a year as he hasn't featured for his country since scoring a brace against Germany in November 2017 and he narrowly missed out on a place in their World Cup squad.

"This does not take away the credit for what he does".

Following last weekend's club duties, France internationals have arrived at the Clairefontaine training center to prepare for the UEFA Nations League group match against the Netherlands on Friday and home friendly against Uruguay at the Stade de France next Tuesday.
