The staff is currently coping with multiple sicknesses as a bug has begun to spread. Dayot Upamecano and Adrien Rabiot, who both started in the team's 2-1 quarterfinal victory over England, were compelled to skip practise on Tuesday, the day before the game. According to the source, Upamecano has a sore throat and Rabiot is feeling under the weather, so it's uncertain whether they'll play against Morocco.
Youssef Fofana would probably be the replacement for Rabiot in midfield, and Ibrahima Konate would probably take Upamecano's place in defence. When France faced Tunisia in the group stage, they had already secured their place in the knockout round and were resting the majority of their regular starters. Many of France's usual stars have already left. Karim Benzema, a star striker, suffered a calf injury in training just days before their opening game and was later told he would miss the entire World Cup.
