Marseille midfielder Jordan Veretout was called up Saturday for France’s Nations League matches as a replacement for the injured Boubacar Kamara, the day after Kamara had replaced Adrien Rabiot.
Veretout made the last of his five international appearances last November in a World Cup qualifier.
Kamara came off just before halftime in Aston Villa’s 1-0 win over Southampton in the English Premier League on Friday night, having failed to shake off an injury he sustained in a challenge moments earlier.
France coach Didier Deschamps had replaced Rabiot as a precautionary measure after assessing the Juventus player’s left calf injury.
