France’s Kingsley Coman has been granted permission to leave the European Championship squad to attend the birth of his child, the country’s football federation (FFF) said on Thursday.

The decision was authorised by coach Didier Deschamps and the federation gave the Bayern Munich winger permission after consultation with governing body UEFA and its COVID cell.

“After consultation with UEFA and the UEFA COVID cell, Didier Deschamps and the Federation authorized Kingsley Coman to join his partner and attend the birth of his child,” the FFF said.

“All precautions have been taken, particularly in terms of health.”

Coman, 25, was an unused substitute in France’s 1-0 win over Germany in their Group F opener on Tuesday. They next take on Hungary at the Puskas Arena on Saturday.
