Since being sent off against Liverpool, Paul Pogba never played in a domestic match for Manchester United.

Paul Pogba, Manchester United's midfielder, has been removed from France's World Cup qualifying matches due to a thigh injury.

According to the French Football Federation (FFF), the injury occurred during training Monday for the World Cup winner, 28-year-old.

Pogba won't be featured in Saturday's match against Kazakhstan at home or in the away game against Finland on 16/11 November.

As he serves a domestic ban, he was already scheduled to miss United's next match against Watford in Premier League on 20 Nov.

Pogba was suspended for his actions in the humiliating 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool on 24 Oct.

According to the FFF, Pogba suffered an injury to his quadriceps in the right thigh.

France must win one of the remaining two games in order to qualify for 2022 World Cup.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United boss, is currently without several players due to injury.

Raphael Varane, Pogba's international teammate, is currently out with a hamstring injury. Forward Edinson Cavani was unable to play in Saturday's loss by Manchester City. Luke Shaw was substituted after suffering a head injury.

Shaw is currently following concussion protocol, and did not join the England squad Monday.

After one win in six Premier League matches, Solskjaer's position at United was under severe scrutiny.
