Chelsea's Malo Gusto withdraws from the France U-23 team


An official report has confirmed that Chelsea's full-back Malo Gusto has withdrawn from the France under-23 squad.

L'Équipe, a French sports newspaper, reported that Malo Gusto, a fullback from Chelsea, has withdrawn from the under-23s squad of France that is being led by Thierry Henry. This development comes ahead of France's upcoming matches against the United States and the Ivory Coast. The matches are part of France's preparation for the Paris Olympics, which are scheduled for the summer.

Gusto, who was expected to start for Henry in these games, has been affected by a virus, as reported by the player himself this morning. As a result, he reported feeling unwell and is now unable to carry on his international duties. Therefore, he has decided to withdraw from the squad and will be returning to London later today.

This news could be a blow for the French national team as Gusto is a talented fullback who has been performing well for Chelsea in recent times. However, it remains to be seen who will replace him in the squad, and the team will have to find a way to cope without him in the upcoming matches.
