The Arsenal forward had been called-up to cover for the injured Anthony Martial but will now not feature against Netherlands and Uruguay. However, as the Arsenal striker was also unfit himself, the replacement has been changed to debutant Alassane Plea from Borussia Moenchengladbach, who finished a hat-trick in last weekend's Bundesliga victory over Werder Bremen.

Manchester City left-back Benjamin Mendy is out of the France squad for their upcoming internationals with a sprained left knee and meniscal lesion, according to L'Equipe.

The decision for Lacazette not to join the squad was made after Les Bleus spoke with Arsenal's medical staff.

The 22-year-old missed out on World Cup glory over the summer, with his exclusion from Didier Deschamps' squad taken by many as an indicator of the winger's inconsistency last season and the wealth of talent at the national manager's disposal.

It was Lacazette's first call-up for nearly a year as he hasn't featured for his country since scoring a brace against Germany in November 2017 and he narrowly missed out on a place in their World Cup squad.

Speaking about Lacazette in October, Deschamps said: 'It is true that he is having a good early season where he is efficient and effective.

"There is competition in this position and for the moment the players I selected for the World Cup, I continue to rely on them".

"It is also necessary to have a balanced squad and he is a central attacker".

France have a Nations League game against the Netherlands in Rotterdam on 16 November before playing Uruguay in a friendly at the Stade de France on 20 November.
