Defending champions France have suffered a huge setback ahead of Wednesday’s World Cup semi-final clash against Morocco.
According to The Sun, the France World Cup squad have been hit with a major blow with a bug spreading within the squad ahead of the game against Morocco.
Dayot Upamecano and Adrien Rabiot are serious doubts for the game against Morocco on Wednesday after they were both forced to sit out of training on Tuesday, the team’s last session before facing Morocco.
Upamecano, who also missed training on Monday, has a sore throat while Rabiot is also under the weather.
Liverpool’s Ibrahima Konate and Youssef Fofana are on standby in case the first-choice duo cannot recover in time for the game against Morocco.
Rabiot has played in all five matches while Upamecano was rested for the defeat to Tunisia after qualification for the knockout rounds was already secured.
They both played the full 90 minutes of Les Bleus’ 2-1 quarter-final win over England on Saturday and Deschamps is hoping to keep an unchanged XI for the game against Morocco.
