The Arsenal forward had been called-up to cover for the injured Anthony Martial but will now not feature against Netherlands and Uruguay.

Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette has earned a long-awaited return to the France national team after a year out of the squad.

Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba have withdrawn from the France squad through injury - despite meeting up with their global team-mates at Clairefontaine on Monday.

"This decision was taken after an exchange between Dr. Franck Le Gall and his counterparts at Arsenal", a statement on Twitter read on Monday.

Alassane Plea, who has scored eight goals in the Bundesliga for Borussia Monchengladbach this season, has been called up instead.
