The Daily Mail says as the 2006 finalists’ embarrassing World Cup campaign went from bad to worse on Monday, there was a suggestion in France that captain Evra may be considering his stance ahead of the game against South Africa.
Asked if some players would refuse to play, coach Raymond Domenech said: "It is a possibility."
Evra was thought to have been one of the ringleaders when Domenech’s players refused to train on Sunday in protest at the French Football Federation’s decision to send home Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka in the wake of the 2-0 defeat to Mexico.
The French trained as planned on Monday ahead of a game they must win well if they are to have any chance of qualifying for the next stage.
Domenech said: "To say the least, this game has been difficult to prepare for.
"On Sunday I tried to convince the players of the unprecedented stupidity of what they were about to do. I completely support the expulsion of Nicolas Anelka."
