World Cup: Olivier Giroud struggling to face Argentina in final

AC Milan striker Olivier Giroud is struggling to be fit for the World Cup final with France.

According to Tribalfootball, Saturday night’s training session saw Marcus Thuram tested as a centre-forward instead of Giroud, who is struggling with a knee strain.

There is now real concern that Giroud won’t be fit to start against Argentina.

The build-up to the final against Argentina has been dominated by the outbreak of a virus in the camp, but the good news for Les Bleus is that all 24 available players should be available as Ibrahima Konaté, Dayot Upamecano, Raphaël Varane, and Adrien Rabiot are expected to be ok.

Théo Hernandez missed yesterday’s session after a knee knock of his own, but in training Kylian Mbappé was used as a striker with Thuram taking up a position on the left wing and Ousmane Dembele on the right.
