France are being hit with misfortune after misfortune. Konate and Varane are rumored to be sick with the same virus affecting Rabiot. Both doubtful for final.

376 heavily armed and trained cops in body armor, with APCs, are scared to death of ONE 18-year old with an AR-15

But the general public, with none of those advantages, should not be concerned that 18-year olds can buy AR-15s

We could see Kounde and Saliba as replacement CBs for France if Konate and Varane are ruled out of the final.

France receive a major boost on the eve of the World Cup final with ALL of the players struggling with a virus back in training... meaning Raphael Varane, Ibrahima Konate and Kingsley Coman will be ready to face Argentina tomorrow

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footb ... virus.html

France have received a massive boost ahead of tomorrow's World Cup final against Argentina as all of the players who have struggled with a virus have been cleared to return to training.

Adrien Rabiot and Dayot Upamecano missed the semi-final against Morocco, while Raphael Varane, Ibrahima Konate and Kingsley Coman have missed the last two days of training due to an outbreak within the camp.

Pictures from Saturday's training session show that Rabiot, Upamecano, Varane and Coman have all returned to action.

French television network TF1, as per Get France Football, reported that all five including Konate will be back in training today.

Rabiot and Upamecano were ruled out of the 2-0 victory over Morocco and as reported by RMC Sport have already returned to training after recovering from the illness.

Varane and Konate started at centre-back against Morocco and the fact they had also been struck with the illness going around the camp, would have been a source of worry for manager Didier Deschamps.

Coman hasn't been a starter in Qatar but offers another attacking threat off the bench should France need it.

It will be a big relief for Deschamps to have his squad back together for the final.

Inside the French camp, in a bid to avoid the virus spreading further, coaching staff and the squad are wearing masks around the infected players.

There is also said to be no major concerns for Aurelien Tchouameni and Theo Hernandez who both trained in the gym on Friday after suffering hip and knee knocks respectively.

It's said there is more confidence that Tchouameni - who scored one of the goals that knocked out England in the quarter-finals - is going to be fine than Hernandez.

Speaking about the virus, manager Didier Deschamps said: 'We are trying to manage this as best as we can and remain calm and focused.

'We are doing our best to take precautions and adapt and live with it without going too far but doing what is necessary. We would have preferred not to face this but are managing it as best as we can.'

They are not the first team to complain about this, after Brazil and Manchester United star Antony also raised the issue and the affect it was having on his side earlier in the tournament.

Meanwhile, fans have also complained about air conditioning inside the tournament's various stadiums, revealing that they have had to wear jumpers to keep warm when attending matches.

Striker Randal Kolo Muani, who came off the bench to score France's second goal in their win over Morocco, said on Friday: 'There's a little flu that's been spreading but nothing serious. They'll be well soon and be ready for Sunday.'

A French press officer added: 'As you know, Randal is not a doctor, we will communicate about it later.'

Kolo Muani said the players who fell ill had been isolated.

'Those who are sick stay in their room, they're being taken care of by the doctors and we've been enforcing social distancing. We're very strict about it,' he said.

Forward Ousmane Dembele said: 'We're not scared of that virus. Dayot and Adrien got a bit of a stomach ache, I made them a ginger and honey tea and then they felt better. I hope everyone will be ready for the final.

'Dayot got better and I think everyone will be ready. We've been taking precautions. The first day, Dayot stayed in his room and we brought him food and he was back with everyone the next day.'

should this viral sicknesses even be happening ? Players should have been isolated and locked away in oxygen chamber and fed only frozen or hot dishes
make peaceful change impossible make violent change inevitable.

"It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is. If the--if he--if 'is' means is and never has been, that is not--that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement....Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true."

ALLEZ FRANCE!!!

🇫🇷

I was going to accept Argentina because I like Messi.

Just can’t.

Argentina got away with a lot. They’re dirty. And cynical.

It’s a shame because they are legitimately good.

Rumors that Deschamps will start Thuram on the left and move Mbappe to the center, dropping Giroud to the bench. I like this idea!! Mbappe against Otamendi!

Mbappe is not getting marked one one one by that midget. They will put 2-3 defenders on him. Romero will be in Giroud on set pieces cos he’s the tallest of the 3 defenders. Argentina are not leaving anything to chance.

That will be defensive suicide. Dembele and Griezmann will rip them to shreds. And remember Messi doesn't often track back to defend.

They tilt the defensive zone in the direction of Kyllian and pull Molina's starting position a little deeper to control the space behind him and prevent the tear away runs. That way they do not leave undefended zones. But it requires rapid defensive transitions without the ball.

They will also look to control the supply lines to him. The key will be how the pick up the movements of Griezman.
Rabiot IMO will be crucial for France.

Also, by starting Di Maria on that right side, they are looking to break the connection between Hernandez and Mbappe, by pushing the LB back towards his goal...

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp

IMO Di Maria in the lineup offers great flexibility to Scaloni. Assuming he's 100%...

He can play high and wide to push back Hernandez as well as keep pace with Mbappe on the defensive end.

He can slide into central MF
Push up next to Alvarez, and allow Messi to drop back and create play from deep...
