‘They aren’t injured, but they’re not available to play,’ Zidane said on Friday.

They’re going to join up with their national teams, then they have five or six days and we’ll see if they’re ready to play for their countries or not. 

‘They’re not injured, they’re out on the [training] pitch. They’re still not training with the group, though, so they’re unable to play tomorrow. I don’t decide, they do. They’re still not ready.’
