Kamara replaces Rabiot, injured in a calf, at the Blues

Midfielder Boubacar Kamara has been called up to replace Adrien Rabiot, “insufficiently recovered” from a calf injury, for the next matches of the France team in the League of Nations, the French Football Federation announced on Friday. .

Coach Didier Deschamps made this decision “as a precaution” while “the evolution of Rabiot’s left calf muscle injury” does not allow the Juventus Turin player to play this weekend in club, is it written in a press release.

The former Parisian will still go to Clairefontaine on Monday, where the Blues are expected for the start of the rally, in order to obtain the opinion of Franck Le Gall, the doctor for the France team, said the management.

Rabiot is replaced numerically by Boubacar Kamara, called up for the first time in June in the tricolor jersey. The 22-year-old, who spent this summer from OM to Aston Villa, had started, against Croatia and Austria, in two of the four games played by France.
