Posted by

Didier Deschamps is facing a selection dilemma as his France squad have been struck by illness just days before their World Cup final clash against Argentina.

France have been forced to contend with injuries throughout the tournament, and lost one of their most important players, Karim Benzema, to injury before the competition even began. Now, with their crunch game against Argentina less than 48 hours away, Deschamp’s squad has been hit with illness.

The Express have reported that the “flu-like bug” has affected five players so far, with Raphael Varane and Ibrahima Konate joining Kinglsey Coman, Adrien Rabiot and Dayot Umpamecano on the sick list.

The air-conditioning inside each stadium has been a talking point throughout the tournament, with several players reporting they feel unwell due to its presence.

Regardless of the cause, however, Deschamps will just be hoping to have as many of his players to choose from as possible come Sunday afternoon.
