Pogba underwent surgery on his right knee in early September after tearing his meniscus during Juventus' preseason tour of the United States in July - having rejoined the Italian club 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.

Defending champion France opens against Australia on Nov. 22 at the World Cup in Qatar, with Denmark and Tunisia also in Group D.
