Meanwhile, England will miss the services of Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood when the Euro 2020 kicks off.
The 19-year-old was among the 33 players Gareth Southgate named in his preliminary squad.
The Red Devils have withdrawn the player from the England camp over a pre-existing injury according to the statement released by the national team and also quoted by The Mirror.
Legit.ng earlier reported that France striker Kylian Mbappe had continued to express his displeasure despite that Olivier Giroud is making moves for the pair to settle their differences, RMC Sport reports via GetFootballNewsFrance.
It was gathered that the Paris Saint-Germain striker felt offended by a comment from the Chelsea man, who lamented the number of passes he had received from certain players during France’s 3-0 victory over Bulgaria.
Coach Didier Deschamps who was aware that Mbappe was about speaking on the issue during the post-match conference stopped the PSG forward from making comments.
