Zinedine Zidane's thigh injury is improving every day, the France team doctor said on Tuesday, but the midfielder remains doubtful for their next World Cup match against Uruguay in Pusan on Thursday.
"The situation is evolving favourably and the work on the ground is improving every day," Dr Jean-Marcel Ferret said in a statement on Tuesday.
The French playmaker has not yet resumed training with his team mates and was therefore again absent from Tuesday's session.
Zidane and midfielder Youri Djorkaeff, who is nursing a groin injury, had medical tests in a Seoul hospital on Tuesday and the results have been sent to a specialist in Paris.
Zidane tore his thigh muscle during a warm-up match against World Cup co-hosts South Korea 10 days ago.
Djorkaeff complained about a painful groin after the world chmapions suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Senegal in the opening match of the tournament in Seoul on Friday.
"The scan performed on Djorkaeff has showed no muscular lesion," Ferret said. "And everything should be back in order very soon."
France travel to Pusan on Wednesday and will then play their last group game against Denmark in Inchon on June 11.
