France forward Antoine Griezmann, who was spotted training separately from the rest of the squad on Tuesday, is fit to take part in the upcoming World Cup match against Peru, France head coach Didier Deschamps said Wednesday.
“He’s well. There was a little concern with his ankle, because he was a little bit swollen after the match, but he has started the training sessions as per usual. He was at his best during the match,” Deschamps told reporters at the pre-match press conference.
The 1998 World Cup winners will take on Peru in their second Group C match in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg on Thursday.
France are currently top of Group C after defeating Australia 1-0 in their first match at the World Cup, where Griezmann scored the only goal of the game and received the Man of the Match award.
