Manchester United striker Paul Pogba injured his thigh during the World Cup in France.

The 28-year-old World Cup winner was injured in training on Monday, the French Football Association (FFF) said.

Pogba will not take part in Saturday’s home game in Kazakhstan or his departure from Finland on 16 November.

He agreed to forgive United in the next game, leaving Watford in the Premier League on November 20 after a three-match ban.

Paul Pogba was disqualified for a red card in Liverpool’s 5-0 home win on 24 October.

The FFF said Pogba had a “right thigh quadriceps injury”.

France needs a win in their last two games to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

United captain Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still with several players due to injury.

Raphael Varane, Pogba’s national teammate, was injured while Edinson Cavani missed out on Manchester City last Saturday, replacing Luke Shaw in the same game in which he won the title.

Shaw followed up on a series of unrelated negotiations with the England team on Monday.

United’s Solskjaer situation is under scrutiny after he has won only one of his last six games.
