Piers Morgan claims France World Cup team ‘deliberately poisoned’ before Argentina final | Football | Sport


Piers Morgan believes that France were ‘deliberately poisoned’ before their World Cup final showdown against Argentina on Sunday. Illness had swept the French camp within the lead-up to the fixture, with several top players missing training to hurry up their recovery. 

Sick health throughout the France squad began before their semi-final against Morocco. Midfielder Adrien Rabiot and centre-back Dayot Upamecano missed the clash through injury, but their deputies helped Les Bleus through to Sunday’s final via a 2-0 win. 

Deschamps’ nerves were jangling within the week when other cases of a virus were confirmed throughout the camp. Raphael Varane, Kingsley Coman and Ibrahima Konate were supposedly affected which undoubtedly hampered the squad’s preparation. 

Having witnessed a striking first half, during which Argentina dominated and France didn’t register a single shot, Morgan tweeted: “It wasn’t a virus, the French team clearly got deliberately poisoned.”

Although the low level of France’s first-half performance cannot be questioned, not everybody agreed with Morgan’s somewhat extreme accusation. In response to his tweet, Klaudia wrote: “Soon they’re gonna blame the colour of their kit or the proven fact that the sport was so early and so they will not be used to playing that early.”

Following Morgan’s lengthy interview with Messi’s GOAT rival Cristiano Ronaldo last month, @AndrewMcG_90 responded: “Morgan is worried Argentina will win this game because finally once and for all it ends the Ronaldo-Messi debate. Messi will go down as the higher of the 2 and maybe the best of all time.”

Pointless to say, France woke up within the second half and Argentina were hit with a devastating one-two hammerblow through Kylian Mbappe. Firstly, he stepped as much as the spot after Randal Kolo Muani was brought down by Nicolas Otamendi, before his wicked half-volley brought the sport level moments later. 

Unable to be separated, the breathless World Cup final went to extra-time at Lusail Stadium where Mbappe crowned his hat-trick and Messi grabbed one other goal. Argentina ultimately prevailed within the shootout with Gonzalo Montiel converting the decisive spot-kick.
