If the clutch on the manual transmission goes out could it cause the car to not on 2002 Ford Escort

The clutch was replaced and now the car won't go into first gear unless it is completely stopped. It did not do this until the clutch was changed. Is there something that might have happened during the clutch change that would cause this? All the other gears work fine now.
