Just two days before the 2022 World Cup final against Argentina this Sunday (4 p.m.), two new French players are suffering.
Raphaël Varane and Ibrahima Konaté are affected by the viral syndrome which has hit the group since the start of the week.
The two men, aligned in central defense in the semi-final against Morocco (2-0), have felt symptoms in recent hours.
The Manchester United defender is said to be experiencing mild symptoms so far, while the Liverpool stalwart, a strong substitute for Dayot Upamecano against the Atlas Lions, is not feeling the best either.
They will, according to our information, both be preserved for the training session at 4 p.m. (6 p.m. local).
It is, without a doubt, the same virus that hit Adrien Rabiot and Dayot Upamecano this week.
In the semi-finals, the Juventus midfielder could not even take a seat on the bench in the semi-finals.
The Bayern Munich defender was left on the sidelines, but was listed on the score sheet.
Not entered during the match, Kingsley Coman also felt a state of excitement.
After resting at the hotel on Thursday, he would feel better but will not train on Friday either.
Finally, Théo Hernandez will remain for his part in treatment following a blow to the knee.
At this stage, none of these players is out of the final but they will be closely monitored over the next 48 hours.
Even if the situation does not worry the staff of the Blues for the moment, it challenges two days before the final against Argentina.
On this Friday's program, Randal Kolo Muani and Ousmane Dembélé will perhaps say a little more at a press conference at 2:45 p.m.
