Alexandre Lacazette earns long-awaited France call-up

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial have withdrawn from the France squad to face the Netherlands and Uruguay, along with Manchester City's Benjamin Mendy.

Martial played the full 90 minutes during Sunday's Manchester derby and scored United's only goal from the penalty spot, while Pogba missed the game after injuring himself in the Champions League win against Juventus.

Striker Alexandre Lacazette had originally replaced Martial but the Arsenal forward was unable to join the squad.

And on Monday, another Man United player - Anthony Martial was sent back home from the national team training camp due to an injury.

That saw Borussia Monchengladbach forward Alassane Plea, 25, earn his first call-up, while Lyon left-back Ferland Mendy, 23, also hopes to make his worldwide debut after being called up in place of Mendy.
