Mbappe tests positive for corona virus and will miss France-Croatia

The forward has been forced to return home to self isolate after returning a positive Covid-19 test while with the national team

Paris Saint-Germain and France attacker Kylian Mbappe has tested positive for Covid-19.

The forward, who is asymptomatic, has left the national team squad and will not feature for Les Bleus in their forthcoming Nations League fixture with Croatia in Paris on Tuesday, a match in which he was expected to form a forward trident along with Wissam Ben Yedder and Anthony Martial.

He featured in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Sweden and scored the winning goal in that clash after breaking through a couple of challenges in the box before finishing from an acute angle.
