Paul Pogba will not be playing for France next month as the World Cup 2022 finalists continue their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign.
- Pogba out for 6 to 8 weeks
- Midfielder will miss Euro qualifiers with France
- France will play Gibraltar and Greece
What is the news?
Pogba sustained a thigh injury last weekend in his first game for Juventus since he rejoined the club last summer. The French midfielder is not enjoying the best season of his career and has not been able to play much for the Italian giants since his free transfer from Manchester United. The thigh injury he suffered against Cremonese is significant enough to keep him out of contention for at least a month to six weeks.
Much was expected from the return of Pogba last summer. The midfielder enjoyed some of the best seasons of his career whilst playing for the Turin club and the expectations at Juventus were sky high. After undergoing surgery to his knee at the start of the season, he has then missed another 19 matches for Juventus due to injuries.
With the latest injury setback, Pogba will not be featuring for France next month. The 2018 World Champions will be continuing their Euro 2024 qualification campaign with matches against Gibraltar and Greece. France won the first two matches and they currently lead the race ahead of Greece and Netherlands, who are both on three points.
