Pogba could be out for up to two months after tearing his meniscus and Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said on Monday that he won't play for the club again until January.

France will be defending the World Cup in Qatar from Nov. 20 to Dec. 18.

Pogba was injured in July during a preseason tour in the United States, having rejoined Juventus two weeks earlier from Manchester United.

It's been a rough period for Pogba, amid an inquiry into allegations that he was targeted by extortion attempts by his brother and childhood friends.
