Four days after debuting in the Eurocup in view of Germany, Antoine Griezmann, Karim Benzema and Raphäel Varane, three pillars of the French team, were absent from training this Friday in the sports city of Clairefontaine.
Both Griezmann, with muscle discomfort, and Benzema, recovering from a bruise to his right knee in the June 8 game against Bulgaria, exercised in the gym, while Varane rested.
This Friday’s session was marked by working with the ball, for which six-on-six matches were organized using half the field.
France will debut against Germany on the Eurocup on June 15 in Munich. Then it will be measured at Hungary in Budapest on the 19th and will close the first phase against the current champion, Portugal, on the 23rd also in Budapest.
