The Daily Mail says as the 2006 finalistsâ€™ 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 Domenechâ€™s players refused to train on Sunday in protest at the French Football Federationâ€™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."
