Paris, Sep 8: France striker Kylian Mbappe has tested positive for coronavirus and will miss UEFA Nations League match against Croatia, the French Football Federation (FFF) has said. The PSG forward, who is asymptomatic as reported by RMC Sports, has left the national team squad and begun his home quarantine. Mbappe scored for Les Bleus in their 1-0 win over Sweden last Saturday, but will now be absent for Tuesday's clash against Croatia at Stade de France, which is a rematch of the 2018 FIFA World Cup final. Mbappe is the seventh PSG player to test positive for Covid-19. The Ligue 1 champions last week reported six confirmed cases, whom French media L'Equipe said are Neymar, Mauro Icardi, Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes and Keylor Navas. All six had holidayed on the Spanish island of Ibiza after the Champions League final against Bayern Munich on August 23. IANS
