Martial, Pogba, Lacazette latest injuries in France squad

PARIS (AP) An avalanche of injuries has struck World Cup champion France after four more players were ruled out on Monday.

Manchester United players Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial as well as Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette and Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy will miss the trip to the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League and a home friendly against Uruguay.

Coach Didier Deschamps called Moussa Sissoko and Lacazette as replacements for Pogba and Martial on Monday, but the French Football Federation later said Lacazette was unavailable. Pogba has a left thigh injury and Martial injured an adductor muscle.
