Liverpool and France star Ibrahima Konate has a virus just two days out from the World Cup Final.

After a world class performance in the semi-final Konate is facing a race against time to be fit for the final.

Ironically, Konate started after Dayot Upamecano was struck down with the virus before the tie with Morocco.

L’Equipe report that Konate along with Kingsley Coman, and Raphael Varane remained in their hotel rooms and were absent from training today.

Dayot Upamecano has recovered and returned to training. Didier Deschamps faces an anxious 48 hours with the prospect of him having two centre backs ruled out due to illness.
