Kylian Mbappe, 21, scored the only goal as France beat Sweden in their Nations League opener on Saturday.

He was placed away from team-mates on Monday and has since been sent home.

France face Croatia at the Stade de France at 19:45 BST on Tuesday.

“His Covid-19 test carried out by Uefa on Monday morning revealed a positive result, he was separated from the squad after receiving the results at the end of training and returned home in the evening,” the France Football Federation confirmed.

“Mbappe was tested before joining up with the squad. The result was negative, like that of a test taken on Wednesday at Uefa’s request for the Sweden game,” it added.

The Ligue 1 season has started but the opening game between Marseille and Saint-Etienne had to be postponed last month after four home players tested positive for Covid-19.
