Two days before the final match against Argentina at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the French national soccer team was in an emergency. At least five French players have been reported to have developed symptoms of what they believe to be a cold.

According to the Associated Press on the 16th 메이저놀이터 (local time), Rafael Baran (29, Manchester United) and Ibraima Konate (23, Liverpool) showed symptoms similar to a cold and did not attend the team training that day.

Earlier this week, the media reported that Dayo Upamecano (24, Bayern Munich), Kingsley Coman (26, Bayern Munich), and Adrien Rabio (27, Juventus) had the same symptoms and were isolated from other players.

Upamecano and Rabiot returned to training on Friday after being quarantined for several days, but Coman was also absent from training that day.

The Associated Press quoted the French sports media L’Equipe and reported that Theo Hernandez (25, AC Milan) and Aurelien Chuameni (22, Real Madrid) also did not show up at the training ground that day.

It is not known exactly which virus the players were infected with. France 24 said, “The soccer team did not disclose more detailed explanations or whether or not corona diagnostic tests were conducted.”

Ousmane Dembele (25, Barcelona), a striker from France, said, “I’m not worried” about the current players’ condition. “We are not afraid of viruses. Upamecano and Rabiot suffered from headaches and stomachaches, and they got better after brewing tea with ginger and honey.”

Meanwhile, France will clash with Argentina over the championship cup at 0:00 a.m. on the 19th in Korea time.
