Aurelien Tchouameni and Theo Hernandez miss France training

France stars Aurelien Tchouameni and Theo Hernandez missed today’s training ahead of their World Cup final match against Argentina on Sunday, according to RMC Sport.

Tchouameni suffered a hip contusion during their semi-final match against Morocco and has been ruled out. Hernandez is also out with knee issues.

Bayern Munich attacker Kingsley Coman is out with an injury and is doubtful for Sunday’s game. Ibrahima Konate and Raphael Varane are suffering from flu.

The French camp are now worried about a growing list of players suffering from injury and flu.

Furthermore, Les Bleus are reportedly social distancing in their hotel rooms to contain the spread of the flu in the camp.

Didier Deschamps will be hoping his stars can recover for the final. In the absence of Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante, Tchouameni has shone as France’s midfield lynchpin.

The 22-year-old Real Madrid star breaks up opposition play and starts attacks for his side. Hernandez is also starring at left-back after replacing his brother Lucas.

The AC Milan star opened the scoring in the semi-final against Morocco with a stunning acrobatic volley. His deliveries are a threat, and he is a constant outlet down the left side.


Defensive duo Konate and Varane were superb against the North Africans, and Deschamps will want them fit for Sunday.

Les Bleus have a chance to create history in Qatar. They can join Italy and Brazil as the only teams to win back-to-back World Cups.

Lionel Messi‘s Argentina stand in their way. The dogged South Americans are looking for their third world title after their successes in 1978 and 1986.

Sunday promises to be a memorable occasion.
