Bakayoko to join France instead of Pogba

France national team manager Didier Deschamps decided that Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko can be substitute for Manchester United playmaker Paul Pogba, who is currently sidelined due to injury picked up during the Europa League round of 16 clash against Rostov (1-0).

Bakayoko is not the only Monaco player to be in France squad for the international break. His 18-year-old teammate Kylian Mbappe is also listed among France players for the upcoming matches.

Paris Saint-Germain 21-year-old defender Presnel Kimpembe will also have the opportunity to feature in France clashes of the upcoming international break.

France national team will face Luxembourg for WC-2018 qualifier and will also play a friendly against Spain.
