Tomorrow, France has a big semi-final duel with Morocco, who surprised everyone at the World Cup in Qatar, but the threat of Atlas Lions, Didier Deschamps, will have more reason to worry.
Namely, two key players of this team, stopper Dayo Upamecano and midfielder Aurelian Chuameni, missed today’s training of the national team in Doha, two days before the semi-final of the World Cup against Morocco, AFP journalists reported.
France players started training with exercises under the guidance of fitness coach Cyril Moyne, during the first 20 minutes open to the press.
Chuameni and Upamecano moved to Yassim Bin Hamad Stadium, where they trained separately behind closed doors.
According to L’Equipe daily, Tchouaméni suffered a calf injury against England on Saturday in the quarter-finals, and Upamecano has a sore throat.
The president of the French Football Federation, Noel Le Grae, was present on the edge of the pitch to watch the training session. He also spent a few minutes talking with coach Didier Deschamps under the watchful eye of numerous journalists.
