Everton dealt blow as Lucas Digne withdraws from France squad

Lucas Digne withdraws from France squad

France and Belgium faced off in a UEFA Nations League semi-final clash on Thursday.

Les Bleus came out on top by three goals to two. Lucas Digne would be included in the matchday squad, but did not make it off the bench.

This was then followed by a report that Digne was not risked, after complaining of a hamstring issue pre-match:

And it has now been confirmed by Everton that Digne has been released from international duty, of course ruling him out of the Nations League final versus Spain this weekend.

Everton vs West Ham

How long Digne may be out for is not yet known, but Everton will no doubt be desperate to have their star stopper available next weekend.

The Frenchman is the Toffees’ only reliable senior left-back, meaning his absence versus West Ham on Sunday, October 17th, would be a big blow.

Everton will head into the clash having enjoyed a fine start to the season under Rafael Benitez. The Merseysiders have won four, drawn two and lost one in the league so far.

This has seen Everton climb up to 5th place early in the Premier League campaign, with only two points separating them from table-toppers Chelsea.

However, West Ham will prove no pushovers, and Digne’s absence would most certainly increase Everton’s chances of slipping up against the Hammers.
