Rabiot out of Ukraine match after contact with virus case

PARIS (AP) — France midfielder Adrien Rabiot will miss Wednesday’s friendly against Ukraine after getting close to two people who have been infected with the coronavirus.

Speaking during a news conference on Monday, France coach Didier Deschamps said the Juventus player will respect the Italian authorities’ protocol that requires a five-day isolation period and two COVID-19 tests.

If negative, Deschamps said Rabiot will be able to join his teammates on Thursday and could be available for France’s Nations League matches against Portugal and Croatia on Oct. 11 and 14.
