Liverpool’s Ibrahima Konate has recovered in time for the World Cup Final on Sunday.

Konate was isolating away from the squad as he contracted a virus. It has also affected Kingsley Coman and Raphael Varane.

L’Equipe report that Konate has returned to group training. Kinglsey Coman has remained isolated in his room and is now a doubt for the final.

It will be interesting to see what centre back partnership Deschamps decides to select after Konate’s flawless semi-final.

Deschamps is set to select between Dayot Upamecano, Raphael Varane, and Ibrahima Konate.

The French defence are set for one of their toughest tests yet against Lionel Messi and Co.
