Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette won’t be joining the French team camp even though he got selected into the called up squad after Anthony Martial got injured a few hours ago. Alexandre Lacazette has never received a call up from the French team since November 2017.
France has however confirmed that Alexandre Lacazette won’t be with them because he is reportedly injured, the statement was released on their official Twitter account. It read;
.@LacazetteAlex, ne pourra pas répondre à sa convocation. Cette décision a été prise à l’issue d’un échange entre le Docteur Franck Le Gall et ses homologues d’Arsenal.

“Alexandre Lacazette will not be able to feature. This decision was made following an exchange between Dr Franck Le Gall and his Arsenal counterparts.”
Arsenal fans are happy about this because this will stop their striker from any possible injury yet they need him for the upcoming tough matches that begin as soon as the International Break ends. Lacazette did not receive a call up from France when it travelled to Russia for the FIFA World Cup but he is now working hard to impress for his club so that he can get noticed by Didier Deschamps.
We will now have to wait for an official announcement from Arsenal on what is wrong with Alexandre Lacazette because he looked pretty sharp against Wolverhampton on Sunday.
