Malta Independent - - SPORT -

At­tack­ing mid­fielder Thomas Le­mar has been called up to the France squad for today’s World Cup qual­i­fier against Sweden as a re­place­ment for injured winger Kings­ley Co­man.

The French Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion says Co­man, who plays for Bay­ern Mu­nich, has hurt his left knee and left an­kle.

The 20-year-old Le­mar has done well for sec­ond-place Monaco this sea­son, scor­ing four league goals and one in the Cham­pi­ons League.

He could make his in­ter­na­tional de­but ei­ther against Sweden at Stade de France or against Ivory Coast in a friendly match next Tues­day.
