Kylian Mbappe has been ruled out of game against Croatia on Tuesday (Sep 8) after testing positive for COVID-19, national team management said Monday.
Mbappe is the seventh Paris Saint-Germain player to contract the virus. Neymar was among the first to test positive last week.
“Like the rest of the squad, Mbappe had undergone a test prior to meeting up. The result was negative like the one on Wednesday” requested by UEFA ahead of the Sweden fixture on Saturday in Solna, management said.
Mbappe will also miss PSG’s opening game of the Ligue 1 season against Lens on Thursday. Also six other teammates including Neymar and Argentine pair Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes.
