France replace injured Kurzawa with uncapped Amavi

SoccerNews in Ligue 1 4 Oct 2017

France have called up uncapped Marseille defender Jordan Amavi to replace injured Paris Saint-Germain full-back Lavyin Kurzawa.

Kurzawa has suffered a knee injury during training at Clairefontaine on Monday and, despite intensive treatment, has been unable to recover in time to face Bulgaria and Belarus in World Cup qualifying.

As a result, Didier Deschamps has turned to Amavi, who is on loan at Marseille from Aston Villa.

The 23-year-old is yet to play for Les Bleus at senior level, but was previously a regular at youth levels, including with the Under-21 side.

With Benjamin Mendy already injured, Deschamps’ options at left back are now Barcelona’s Lucas Digne and Amavi.

Laurent Koscielny, Paul Pogba and Ousmane Dembele are other key names ruled out of France’s key double-header due to injury.

France are top of Group A going into their final two qualifiers, but have work to do with Sweden sitting only a point behind, with Netherlands and Bulgaria also in contention.
