Barcelona have confirmed forward Ansu Fati has suffered a torn meniscus. 

Uncapped attacker Pietro Pellegri has returned to the Italy squad after two years away, while Davide Calabria and Matteo Pessina have been called up for the first time.

Pellegri, who joined Monaco for a reported €25million fee as a 16-year-old in January 2018, was summoned by the Azzurri for the first and only time in September of that year but an injury forced him to withdraw from the squad.

The former Genoa player has only made 10 appearances for Monaco due to a series of injury issues. Four of his outings have come this season, but he missed the entirety of 2019-20 due to hamstring problems and has featured for a total of 171 minutes.

His first and only goal came in a 2-1 defeat to Bordeaux in August 2018 and has only registered one shot on target for the first team since then.

But Pellegri could finally earn his first Italy cap in a friendly against Estonia next Wednesday, with Roberto Mancini naming a bumper 41-man squad.

Bologna midfielder Roberto Soriano is back in the fold four years after his previous call-up, while Domenico Criscito returns for the first time since October 2018.

Gianluigi Donnarumma, Alex Meret, Leonardo Bonucci, Alessandro Florenzi, Jorginho, Federico Chiesa, Lorenzo Insigne and Moise Kean have all been given permission to join up with the team the day before that match.

The rest of the squad will convene on Sunday, or as soon as they have completed any necessary period of isolation.

Mancini has tested positive for coronavirus and will reportedly not be in the dugout against Estonia, with assistant manager Alberigo Evani set to temporarily take charge of first-team affairs.

 

Italy squad:

Alessio Cragno (Cagliari), Gianluigi Donnarumma (Milan), Alex Meret (Napoli), Salvatore Sirigu (Torino); Francesco Acerbi (Lazio), Cristiano Biraghi (Fiorentina), Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus), Davide Calabria (Milan), Domenico Criscito (Genoa), Danilo D'Ambrosio (Inter), Giovanni Di Lorenzo (Napoli), Emerson Palmieri (Chelsea), Alessandro Florenzi (Paris Saint-Germain), Gianluca Mancini (Roma), Angelo Ogbonna (West Ham), Luca Pellegrini (Genoa), Alessio Romagnoli (Milan), Leonardo Spinazzola (Roma); Nicolo Barella (Inter), Gaetano Castrovilli (Fiorentina), Bryan Cristante (Roma), Roberto Gagliardini (Inter), Jorginho (Chelsea), Manuel Locatelli (Sassuolo), Lorenzo Pellegrini (Roma), Matteo Pessina (Atalanta), Roberto Soriano (Bologna), Sandro Tonali (Milan); Andrea Belotti (Torino), Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo), Federico Bernardeschi (Juventus), Francesco Caputo (Sassuolo), Federico Chiesa (Juventus), Stephan El Shaarawy (Shanghai Shenhua), Vincenzo Grifo (Freiburg), Ciro Immobile (Lazio), Lorenzo Insigne (Napoli), Moise Kean (Paris Saint-Germain), Kevin Lasagna (Udinese), Riccardo Orsolini (Bologna), Pietro Pellegri (Monaco).

Italy head coach Roberto Mancini has tested positive for coronavirus, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has revealed.

Mancini underwent routine testing ahead of the Azzurri squad meeting up on Sunday for their upcoming triple-header of fixtures.

The FIGC said the 55-year-old is asymptomatic and is self-isolating at home.

A statement added: "Mancini will be able to join the squad at Coverciano once he has completed the necessary procedures, as outlined by the UEFA Return to Play and FIGC protocols."

Italy host Estonia in a friendly on Wednesday before taking on Poland and Bosnia-Herzegovina in their final set of Nations League fixtures.

Mancini's men are unbeaten in 19 matches since a 1-0 loss to Portugal in September 2018 and are second in Group A1, one point below Poland and one above the Netherlands.

Jose Mourinho is concerned Gareth Bale's best interests may not be looked after while he is on international duty with an Arsenal coach on the Wales coaching staff.

Bale was this week recalled for Wales' upcoming clashes with the United States, Republic of Ireland and Finland after missing their October matches due to a knee injury.

Mourinho has eased Bale back into action following his loan move from Real Madrid to Tottenham as the forward builds his fitness up after spending so long on the sidelines.

Robert Page has stepped in to take charge of Wales after the arrest of Ryan Giggs, who denies any wrongdoing, following an allegation of assault.

Page will be assisted by Arsenal coach Albert Stuivenberg, which Spurs boss Mourinho is not comfortable about.

Asked about Bale's fitness, Mourinho said: "I think he's getting better and better. I felt that he could play 90 minutes [in a Europa League win over Ludogorets on Thursday] but it's not about can or cannot, it's about managing the situation and keeping him safe.

"He's player that needs to be safe, he's a player that had enough problems in the past. He is working so much and we all are working so much and so carefully with him that we don't want to destroy the work that everybody has been doing for the past couple of months.

"Of course Wales have two matches where they play in the Nations League and I expect him to play, but if they care as much about him as they say they do, they have to manage the recovery periods, manage how many days between one match and another, manage the minutes he plays and they should not let him get into fatigue levels.

"I don't think, from what I'm reading, it will not be Giggs responsible for these matches and I'm sorry about that because in the previous fixtures, he called me, we spoke about Ben Davies – not Gareth, because Gareth was not there – and we shared opinions on the situation which is probably not going to happen this time.

"The fact that one of their coaches is an Arsenal coach, doesn't make me very comfortable. Honestly, it doesn't make me very comfortable. I think national teams should have coaches that work exclusively for them, not coaches that work for other clubs."

Diego Simeone claimed Spain will benefit from Marcos Llorente's versatility as much as his Atletico Madrid side do.

The midfielder was given a first senior call-up by Spain coach Luis Enrique for a friendly against the Netherlands and Nations League clashes with Switzerland and Germany.

Simeone has used the 25-year-old in a variety of positions since he signed him in June 2019 from LaLiga rivals Real Madrid.

"We are happy with the arrival of Marcos to the national team," the Atletico head coach told a media conference on Friday.

"He is an all-round player, he can play anywhere on the pitch. He can play on the wing, as a second striker.

"He has height, speed and goals. Luis Enrique is going to meet a footballer who will offer him many resources.

"The team has a coach who will always look for what he sees is best for the team, along with the ideas he has and the way the footballers are.

"Marcos is going through a spectacular moment."

Atleti host Cadiz in LaLiga on Saturday having not lost in 12 meetings with the Andalusian side on home turf, with only one draw during this streak – a 0-0 back in May 1991.

Simeone's side are also unbeaten in their last 22 LaLiga matches (W13 D9), their best unbeaten run in the history of the competition and the longest currently of any team in the top five European leagues.

However, Cadiz have made a fine start to the current season and are behind fourth-placed Atletico on goal difference with 14 points, albeit having played two extra games.

With his side having battled to a 1-1 draw against Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League during the week, Simeone is wary of the threat posed by Cadiz.

And he is especially concerned that his players will not have a crowd at the Wanda Metropolitano to encourage their tired legs towards the end of the game following a hectic period.

"Cadiz are a very strong away team that have won all four away games, very compact. I like their form and their collective work," Simeone added.

"At the end of the matches the absence of the public is noticeable because they cannot push in the final stages when the scores are tight. We miss our fans a lot."

Spain coach Luis Enrique had no hesitations in handing Alvaro Morata an international recall after claiming the forward has turned himself into a different player at Juventus.

Morata last played for Spain in a Euro 2020 qualifier against Romania last November, seemingly falling out of favour since.

But the 28-year-old re-joined Juventus on loan from Atletico Madrid in September, and an upturn in form has brought him six goals in seven games for the Bianconeri.

Morata has scored 17 times in 33 appearances for Spain since making his debut in November 2014, but his consistency at club level has been questioned in the past.

However, Luis Enrique has closely monitored Morata's performances at Juve and seen enough to warrant his return to the squad.

Spain face the Netherlands in a friendly on Wednesday, before Nations League clashes with Switzerland and Germany.

"I call on Morata because since he returned to Juventus, he is confident and his numbers indicate that," Luis Enrique told a media conference on Friday.

"You can see a different player with many aspects improved in attack and defence. It is always a pleasure to have Alvaro again.

"Those of us who are outside can appreciate that, in terms of confidence and performance, Morata in attack is better than previously."

Luis Enrique also named Atletico midfielder Koke in his squad after an international exile of just over two years.

Koke, 28, last played for Spain in a 4-1 friendly defeat of Wales in October 2018.

The coach continued: "I have always liked Koke, he is of a high level and as a person he's 10 out of 10. The midfield is my weakness and there is a lot of competition. We will ask him for other things."

With Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara absent due to injury, there was also a first senior call-up for Koke's Atletico team-mate Marcos Llorente, and Luis Enrique backed him to make an impact.

He added: "Llorente is a very complete player, I will ask him where he is most comfortable. He is very versatile.

"He has scored goals, [got] assists, is powerful, well-equipped technically. He is eager to see what he can offer us.

"There are players who are not included due to injury, but it opens up the opportunity to see others. It is an interesting situation for me, to prepare for three very interesting games."

Davy Klaassen has been recalled to the Netherlands squad for their three upcoming internationals.

MIdfielder Klaassen has not played for his country since October 2017 but has been included for a friendly against Spain before Nations League matches versus Bosnia-Herzegovina and Poland, after impressing on his return to Ajax.

He rejoined the Amsterdam giants, with whom he began his career, after spells away at Everton and Werder Bremen.

Krasnodar midfielder Tonny Vilhena and Crystal Palace left-back Patrick van Aanholt have also been included by coach Frank de Boer, who is awaiting a first win since replacing Ronald Koeman.

Marseille midfielder Kevin Strootman and Atalanta's Marten de Roon are among the players absent.

Spain visit the Johan Cruyff ArenA next Wednesday and Bosnia-Herzegovina face the Oranje in Amsterdam four days later before De Boer's men take on Poland in Chorzow on November 18.

The Netherlands are third in Group A1 with just one victory from four Nations League matches.

Netherlands squad: 

Marco Bizot (AZ), Jasper Cillessen (Valencia), Tim Krul (Norwich City); Nathan Ake (Manchester City), Daley Blind (Ajax), Stefan de Vrij (Inter), Hans Hateboer (Atalanta), Patrick van Aanholt (Crystal Palace), Owen Wijndal (AZ); Frenkie de Jong (Barcelona), Mohamed Ihattaren (PSV), Davy Klaassen (Ajax), Teun Koopmeiners (AZ), Donny van de Beek (Manchester United), Joel Veltman (Brighton and Hove Albion), Tonny Vilhena (Krasnodar), Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool), Ryan Babel (Galatasaray), Steven Berghuis (Feyenoord), Steven Bergwijn (Tottenham), Calvin Stengs (AZ); Memphis Depay (Lyon), Luuk de Jong (Sevilla), Donyell Malen (PSV), Quincy Promes (Ajax).

Alvaro Morata and Koke have been recalled to the Spain squad, while Marcos Llorente has earned a first senior call-up.

La Roja have been short of in-form central strikers in recent months but Morata has enjoyed a strong start to the season with Juventus, scoring six goals in seven appearances in all competitions, including three in his past two games.

Morata's last appearance for Spain was in a 5-0 Euro 2020 qualifying win over Romania in November 2019.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke has also returned, having last played for his country in a 4-1 friendly defeat of Wales more than two years ago.

Team-mate Marcos Llorente has earned his first call-up, while Liverpool's Thiago Alcantara is out due to problems with a knee injury and Arsenal's Dani Ceballos has been omitted.

With Diego Llorente injured, Inigo Martinez returns, as does Fabian Ruiz. Rodrigo Moreno is left out after testing positive for coronavirus this week.

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga keeps his place despite having lost his starting spot under Frank Lampard to new signing Edouard Mendy.

Spain face the Netherlands in a friendly on Wednesday, before Nations League clashes with Switzerland and Germany.

Spain squad:

Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea), David de Gea (Manchester United), Unai Simon (Athletic Bilbao); Sergi Roberto (Barcelona), Jesus Navas (Sevilla), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Eric Garcia (Manchester City), Pau Torres (Villarreal), Inigo Martinez (Athletic Bilbao), Jose Gaya (Valencia), Sergio Reguilon (Tottenham); Rodri (Manchester City), Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Fabian Ruiz (Napoli), Sergio Canales (Real Betis), Mikel Merino (Real Sociedad), Koke (Atletico Madrid), Marcos Llorente (Atletico Madrid); Adama Traore (Wolves), Dani Olmo (RB Leipzig), Ferran Torres (Manchester City), Gerard Moreno (Villarreal), Alvaro Morata (Juventus), Ansu Fati (Barcelona), Mikel Oyarzabal (Real Sociedad).

Philipp Max and Felix Uduokhai have been called up to the Germany squad for the first time.

Joachim Low's selection for the November matches also includes Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane and Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who were absent last month.

Lukas Klostermann, Julian Draxler, Suat Serdar, Emre Can, Niklas Sule and Kai Havertz, who tested positive for coronavirus this week, are the players to drop out from the previous squad.

Left-back Max, 27, was part of the silver-medal-winning Germany squad at the 2016 Olympic Games but has yet to be involved for the senior national team.

He has enjoyed a strong start to the season since joining PSV from Augsburg for €8million, making 11 appearances in all competitions.

Defender Uduokhai moved to Augsburg on a permanent deal from Wolfsburg this year, having enjoyed a positive loan spell in 2019-20.

A youth international at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, Uduokhai is also eligible to play for Nigeria's senior side.

Germany face the Czech Republic in Leipzig on November 11 in a friendly match before Nations League contests with Ukraine and Spain.

While most of the senior squad will convene in Leipzig on Monday, eight players will be given until Thursday to join up.

Bayern quintet Manuel Neuer, Serge Gnabry, Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich and Sane, as well as Matthias Ginter of Borussia Monchengladbach, Real Madrid's Toni Kroos and Chelsea's Timo Werner, will only be involved in the Nations League matches.

Germany have won one and drawn three of their Group A4 games.

Germany squad:

Oliver Baumann (Hoffenheim), Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Bernd Leno (Arsenal), Kevin Trapp (Eintracht Frankfurt); Matthias Ginter (Borussia Monchengladbach), Robin Gosens (Atalanta), Marcel Halstenberg (RB Leipzig), Benjamin Henrichs (RB Leipzig), Thilo Kehrer (Paris Saint-Germain), Robin Koch (Leeds United), Philipp Max (PSV), Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea), Nico Schulz (Borussia Dortmund), Niklas Stark (Hertha Berlin), Jonathan Tah (Bayer Leverkusen), Felix Uduokhai (Augsburg); Nadiem Amiri (Bayer Leverkusen), Julian Brandt (Borussia Dortmund), Serge Gnabry (Bayern Munich), Leon Goretzka (Bayern Munich), Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City), Jonas Hofmann (Borussia Monchengladbach), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Florian Neuhaus (Borussia Monchengladbach), Leroy Sane (Bayern Munich); Luca Waldschmidt (Benfica), Timo Werner (Chelsea).

Didier Deschamps believes Dayot Upamecano is going through a "difficult moment" after the defender was left out of the France squad.

Upamecano, 22, was overlooked for a friendly against Finland and Nations League matches against Portugal and Sweden later this month.

Deschamps said RB Leipzig star Upamecano, a three-time France international, would get his chances in the future.

"There is a lot of competition in this position. He was with us before. He's going through a more difficult moment," the France coach told a news conference.

"He knows he can do better. He was quite emotional during his first call up in September, and in October as well. He's a young player and he has the potential. He's playing many games.

"Of course, if it's not him, it's another, it's about the competition. Kurt Zouma in that case, who's doing very well, he's a starter at Chelsea and he knows the French team as well.

"The door is not closed. I make that choice today because it's logical to me. Will it be the same in March and June? It's the same thing for all of the players who were not called but can hope to be in the national team."

While early in the Bundesliga season, Upamecano's duel success rate of 48.9 per cent is lower than he has managed in any campaign since he arrived from Salzburg in 2017.

He is also going at just 1.2 tackles per 90 minutes, which is also his lowest.

Another player still out of the France squad is Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, who last played for his nation in 2018.

"Ousmane is coming back from a big injury, he's playing again, 60 minutes, one half, 30 minutes, 20 minutes... You need to give him time," Deschamps said.

"I know what he can do because he was with us two years ago. He had injuries, it's up to him go back to his full form. It's not the case and it's normal."

James Maddison has admitted to feeling disappointed by his latest omission from the England squad, but vowed to keep pushing for an international return.

Gareth Southgate confirmed his selection for games against the Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland but did not include the 23-year-old on Thursday.

Maddison has now not been involved in the Three Lions senior squad since being handed his first and thus far only cap against Montenegro in November of last year.

Asked if he felt aggrieved by this latest snub, Maddison told BT Sport: "Yeah, if I'm being honest. 

"I want to be in the England squad, that's what I dreamt of as a little boy. I've had a taste of it and I want more. 

"I'm back fit now, I'm firing, getting the minutes in the legs. I had a long injury last year, I've had a couple of knocks this year so I haven't had consecutive run of games. 

"I can't control whether I'm in the England squad or not, I don't pick the team. I can only concentrate on what I'm doing at Leicester and [we're] second in the Premier League, top in the Europa League so [if I] keep my form good for Leicester then the rest will take care of itself."

Should Maddison be in the England squad?

Jack Grealish, Mason Mount and Phil Foden are the three out-and-out attacking midfielders named in Southgate's latest squad.

Grealish's tally of goals and assists (four apiece), touches in the opposition box (61), and chances created from open play (15) make him comfortably the most productive of that trio in the Premier League so far this season.

Mount and Foden also have posted more goal involvements in the English top-flight than Maddison this term.

Foden has scored twice for Manchester City, while Mount has scored one and laid on an assist. Maddison, meanwhile, has just one goal to his name.

However, as the Leicester man alluded to, injuries are to blame for his reduced return, his campaign comprising just 198 minutes on the pitch to Foden's 387 and Mount's 450.

Maddison's passing accuracy in the opposition half (90.14) is superior to both players, as is a dribble success rate of 75 per cent.

He is also converting shots – excluding blocks – at the same rate as Foden (25) and more regularly than Mount (11.11).

So, should he continue to play regularly, there is every chance his overall output will eventually outstrip his rivals for an England spot.

Phil Foden has been recalled to the England squad after being cut from the team in September for breaching coronavirus protocols.

Manchester City midfielder Foden and Manchester United attacker Mason Greenwood were sent home following the Nations League clash with Iceland.

Manager Gareth Southgate left the duo out of his squad for international fixtures in October to "send a message" that stepping out of line with England will not be tolerated.

Foden has now been restored to the squad, though there was no space for Mason Greenwood despite Harvey Barnes being overlooked and Danny Ings missing out through injury.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday regarding Greenwood, Southgate said: "Firstly, we've huge belief in him as a young player, he's on an incredible trajectory for someone so young.

"So, although this may be a disappointment for him, there's a huge amount of time ahead for him.

"He's an outstanding finisher and goal-scorer. He's not had a huge amount of football lately but this is an incredibly long season and he only had a short break at the end of last season.

"He's at a club that cares for young players very well, deals with young players well, they've managed his trajectory to this point extremely well and I know they'll continue to do that.

"I've spoken to Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer, United manager] this week and we are aligned in helping him to be the best player he can possibly be."

Southgate also insisted that Foden's call-up is completely disconnected from Greenwood's situation.

"They don't come as a pair," he added. "They're individual players with their own strengths. We are looking at the balance of the squad positionally.

"Phil has had quite a lot of football with his club. As for Mason, I've had a good chat with Ole. I think it's better to stay with his club.

"There was no carry-over [from the Iceland incident]. That's done. Both are available for selection. Both are going to be very good players.

"They're now judged on the football but they're both in areas where there is a lot of competition."

Raheem Sterling is available again after missing the previous three matches due to injury, while Reece James retained his place despite being shown a red card at the end of the 1-0 loss to Denmark in October.

James and Harry Maguire, who also saw red against Denmark, will miss the Nations League meeting with Belgium on November 15.

England face the Republic of Ireland next Thursday and follow the clash with Belgium by hosting Iceland at Wembley three days later.

 

England squad:

Dean Henderson (Manchester United), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Burnley); Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Conor Coady (Wolves), Eric Dier (Tottenham), Joe Gomez (Liverpool), Reece James (Chelsea), Michael Keane (Everton), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Arsenal), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid), Kyle Walker (Manchester City); Phil Foden (Manchester City), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Declan Rice (West Ham), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton), Harry Winks (Tottenham); Tammy Abraham (Chelsea), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton), Jack Grealish (Aston Villa) Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City).

Phil Foden has been recalled to the England squad after being cut from the team in September for breaching coronavirus protocols.

Manchester City midfielder Foden and Manchester United attacker Mason Greenwood were sent home following the Nations League clash with Iceland.

Manager Gareth Southgate left the duo out of his squad for international fixtures in October to "send a message" that stepping out of line with England will not be tolerated.

Foden has now been restored to the squad, though there was no space for Mason Greenwood despite Harvey Barnes being overlooked and Danny Ings missing out through injury.

Raheem Sterling is available again after missing the previous three matches due to injury, while Reece James retained his place despite being shown a red card at the end of the 1-0 loss to Denmark in October.

Kylian Mbappe has been included in the France squad despite being a doubt for Paris Saint-Germain's next game due to a hamstring injury.

The 21-year-old attacker sat out PSG's 2-1 Champions League loss to RB Leipzig on Wednesday with a muscular problem sustained against Nantes last weekend.

Thomas Tuchel said the issue was "very minor" and Mbappe was due to be reassessed on Thursday ahead of Saturday's home Ligue 1 game against Rennes.

Reports had suggested Mbappe could be forced to miss that game and France's upcoming friendly with Finland and Nations League clashes against Portugal and Sweden, but Didier Deschamps included him in his 26-man squad.

"Today there is no certainty that he cannot be available," Deschamps said when asked about Mbappe's inclusion.

"If I put him in the list today, it is because it is very likely he will be available to face Portugal on Saturday. If all goes well, he should be there.

"I understand the position of club coaches. There is no conflict to be had with anyone. Interests may diverge between those who are tired or have injury doubts.

"I have never taken any risks with anyone. We have the same interest with this player, whether it's Kylian or someone else, but there is no conflict.

"I'm not against Tuchel. He has to manage his matches with the obligations of results, like me with the France team."

Mbappe responded to news of his selection by tweeting a photo of himself in a France shirt with the caption "blessed", which when translated to French sounds similar to the word used for injured.

Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram was handed a first call-up to the senior team, while Dayot Upamecano and Ferland Mendy were left out.

"I've been following him for a while. He does good things. He has the ability to create differences. He scores and assists and has this ability in big games to be very present and good," said Deschamps of Thuram.

Teenage midfielder Eduardo Camavinga missed out through injury and there was no place for Houssem Aouar.

 

France squad:

Benoit Costil (Bordeaux), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), Steve Mandanda (Marseille), Mike Maignan (Lille); Lucas Digne (Everton), Leo Dubois (Lyon), Lucas Hernandez (Bayern Munich), Presnel Kimpembe (Paris Saint-Germain), Clement Lenglet (Barcelona), Benjamin Pavard (Bayern Munich), Raphael Varane (Real Madrid), Kurt Zouma (Chelsea); N'Golo Kante (Chelsea), Steven Nzonzi (Rennes), Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Adrien Rabiot (Juventus), Moussa Sissoko (Tottenham), Corentin Tolisso (Bayern Munich); Wissam Ben Yedder (Monaco), Kingsley Coman (Bayern Munich), Nabil Fekir (Real Betis), Olivier Giroud (Chelsea), Antoine Griezmann (Barcelona), Anthony Martial (Manchester United), Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain), Marcus Thuram (Borussia Monchengladbach).

Rodrigo Moreno has been ruled out of Leeds United's clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday and Spain's three forthcoming internationals after he tested positive for COVID-19.

The 29-year-old forward has made three Premier League starts for Leeds in 2020-21, scoring his first goal for the club in a 1-1 draw with Manchester City at Elland Road in October.

After missing Leeds' 4-1 defeat at home to Leicester City on Monday because he was isolating following contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case, he confirmed his own diagnosis in a post on Instagram.

"Unfortunately I have tested positive for COVID-19 after being in contact with a family member that had been infected without us knowing," said Rodrigo.

"As per the protocol I will be self isolating and will miss the game with Crystal Palace.

"Both my family and I feel great, we are lucky enough to feel healthy and we are keeping a positive attitude.

"From home I will support Leeds and the Spainish National team as a supporter and I will be back on the pitch soon. Thank you for all those who have shown concern."

Rodrigo started for Spain in their most recent fixture, a 1-0 defeat to Ukraine in the Nations League, but will not now be able to link up with Luis Enrique's squad for a friendly against Netherlands and Nations League matches at Switzerland and at home to Germany.
