The football forward, who give France its 1-0 win away at Sweden on Saturday, will not take part in the France national team’s UEFA Nations League matchup against Croatia scheduled to take place in Paris on Tuesday.

The FFF said that the forward player would not participate in the Tuesday France-Croatia match at the Stade de France.

On Saturday, Mbappe took part in France's match against Sweden, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win.
According to the FFF statement, the 21-year-old professional footballer, as well as the entire French delegation, underwent a coronavirus test on Wednesday prior to the Sweden-France game, at the request of the UEFA. The results were negative.
