Two days before the final… At least 5 members of the French national team have cold symptoms
It is understood that at least five people, including Rafael Baran (Manchester United), showed cold symptoms in the French national soccer team two days before the 2022 Qatar World Cup final.
According to AP and AFP on the 16th (local time), Baran and Ibraima Konate (Liverpool) did not attend team training scheduled for the day due to cold symptoms.
Previously, Dayo Upamecano, Kingsle Coman (Bayern Munich), and Adrien Rabiot (Juventus) also complained of the same symptoms a few days ago and had to be isolated from the team.
Among them, Upamecano and Ravio safely returned to team training on the 16th, but the Associated Press quoted the French sports newspaper L’Equipe and reported that Komang was not seen.
In addition, Theo Hernandez 토토사이트 (AC Milan) and Aurelien Chuameni (Real Madrid) also did not appear at the training ground that day. The reason for the two players’ absence was unknown.
It was also not confirmed which virus the players were infected with.
Fox News of the United States, citing staff members of the French national team, reported that Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) appears to be the cause, but public broadcaster France 24 raised the possibility of infection with Corona 19 based on a sore throat.
Reporter Romain Uex France24 said, “(Not only the players) French reporters are not in a good condition. They have been coughing for a week and feel uncomfortable,” he said. “My hypothesis is that the players are infected with Corona 19.”
At the same time, he added, “There is a possibility that he may have been infected with MERS, which is called ‘camel flu’.”
Ousmane Dembele (Barcelona) told the Associated Press, “Viruses aren’t scary. Upamecano and Rabiot suffered from headaches and slight stomachaches.”
Randall Colomuani (Frankfurt) said, “Sick people stay in their rooms. Team medical staff are taking good care of them.”
France and Argentina will play the World Cup final at Lusail Stadium in Qatar on the 19th at 0:00 Korean time.
