Didier Deschamps asks Fifa to investigate suspicions that training was filmed by cameras on drones
France have asked Fifa to investigate their suspicions that a drone was used to spy on the team’s preparations for Sunday’s , coach Didier Deschamps said on Saturday.
The incident is said to have occurred on Tuesday at the French training base north of Sao Paulo.
“Apparently drones are used more and more,” Deschamps said, sounding more miffed than genuinely concerned.
“It’s not up to me, Fifa handles this and has been carrying out an inquiry; we don’t want any intrusion into our privacy.
“It’s very hard to fight this these days.”
