In the final of the FIFA World Cup, Argentina will face France as they battle for the championship lead.
Media reports suggests that France have been hit with a virus and the team's centre-back duo could miss Sunday's World Cup final against Argentina.
Raphael Varane has shown mild signs of the virus and fellow defender Ibrahima Konate has not left his room because he is unwell, ESPN reported.
Varane and Konate were one of five French players who did not report training two days before his World Cup final against Argentina. Dayot Upamecano, Adrien and Kingsley Coman all fell ill earlier in the week and did not participate in training on Friday.
France coach Didier Deschamps has claimed his team is taking steps to prevent the spread of the virus after Upamecano and Rabiot missed out on a semi-final win against Morocco.
"In Doha, temperatures have fallen a little bit, you have air conditioning which is on all the time. We've had a few cases of flu-like symptoms. We are trying to be careful so it doesn't spread, and players have made great efforts out on the pitch and obviously, their immune systems suffer," said the coach as quoted by ESPN.
