Guilavogui replaces Gonalons in France squad

Topics

Maxime Gonalons has dropped out of France's squad for the friendlies with Brazil and Denmark, with Josuha Guilavogui taking his place.

Josuha Guilavogui has been called into the France squad for their upcoming friendlies with Brazil and Denmark as a replacement for Maxime Gonalons.

Midfielder Guilavogui, on loan at Wolfsburg from Atletico Madrid, comes into the squad after Lyon captain Gonalons picked up a hamstring injury in their 2-1 Ligue 1 defeat to Nice on Saturday.

Gonalons' withdrawal follows that of captain Hugo Lloris, who dropped out due to a knee injury sustained in Tottenham's 4-3 win over Leicester City, with Rennes' Benoit Costil taking his place.

France host Brazil at the Stade de France on Thursday before meeting Denmark at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard three days later.
