Paul Pogba also withdrew from the France squad along with Martial, with Lacazette's north London rival Moussa Sissoko also called up for matches against the Netherlands and Uruguay.

Lacazette has been called-up to replace Martial after enjoying a solid campaign so far that's seen him score 6 goals and provide a further 4 assists in his 15 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal.

Manchester United forward Martial who is in fine form for his club scoring six goals in his last five Premier League outings, is suffering from a groin injury.

World champion midfielder Pogba who missed the Red Devils' derby defeat to Manchester City on Sunday through injury has a thigh problem.
