Current world champions, France’s national team is set to face Argentina in the final of the World Cup in Qatar, this Sunday (18th), starting at 12h (Brasília time), at the Lusail Stadium. In comparison with the team that went to the field in the 2-0 victory over Morocco, in the semifinal, there are two new faces: defender Dayot Upamecano and defensive midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
Both had lost the previous duel due to a flu outbreak that hit the delegation. Against the Moroccans, coach Didier Deschamps had selected Ibrahima Konaté (another who also contracted the disease during the Cup) and Youssou Fofaná in the places of Upamecano and Rabiot, respectively.
