France team heavily weakened before the semi-final of the World Cup? Problems of two main players
France will face Morocco in the semi-finals of the World Cup on Wednesday. According to “L’Equipe”, the performance of two key players is in question. Dayot Upamecano and Adrien Rabiot did not practice with the rest of the team.
The “Tricolors” seem to be the clear favorites in the next meeting. The Moroccans have already caused a lot of sensation during the ongoing tournament, but to play in the final they will have to beat the defending champions.
Their task may be a bit easier, as Didier Deschamps may have to manage without two important players. The performance of Dayot Upamecano and Adrien Rabiot is a big question mark.
Both are sick – the Bayern defender was missing from Monday’s classes. The Juventus midfielder was present, but now he felt a little worse and it was considered that he should also recover.
“Dayot Upamecano and Adrien Rabiot are being spared and will remain at the hotel this afternoon,” the French federation said. “L’Equipe” informs who can replace them.
Should the Bayern centre-back fail to heal, Ibrahim Konate is likely to take his place. Youssouf Fofana can play in midfield.
Everything indicates that Aurelien Tchouameni will be at Deschamps’ disposal. The Real midfielder had a slight problem with his calf after the game against England, but on Tuesday he was training with the rest of the team.
