Ousmane Dembele says France are “taking precautions” ahead of Sunday’s World Cup final with Argentina after two more key players were struck down by illness.
Les Blues were without Adrien Rabiot and Dayot Upamecano for Wednesday’s 2-0 semi-final win over Morocco due to a sickness bug in the camp.
Rabiot missed out on the squad entirely while Upamecano was an unused substitute, as was Kingsley Coman, who was also suffering from a fever on the day of the game.
Midfielder Rabiot and defender Upamecano are understood to have now recovered in time for this weekend’s final at Lusail Stadium.
However, according to widespread reports, central-defensive duo Raphael Varane and Ibrahima Konate trained away from the team on Friday after falling ill.
Aurelien Tchouameni and Theo Hernandez are also said to have missed the full session two days out from the final as they are recovering from minor injuries.
