Fifa World Cup, FRA vs MAR, SF Highlights: Easy 2-0 win see France in final- QHN

France vs Morocco Semifinal Highlights, Fifa World Cup


After the cliffhanger quarterfinals, the semi-finals have been pretty straightforward. Though Morocco gave a really tight fight to the French with 62% possession and 13 shots on goal and equal shots on target (3). But maybe it just wasn’t their day as they hit the crossbar with an incredible bicycle kick and missed a few other chances too. 

With this win, France enter consecutive World Cup finals and they would npw face Argentina on their way to the title defence, Morocco on the other hand will face Croatia for the third place playoff. 


It was thought that Croatia will give a tough fight to Argentina, but Julian Alvarez’s brilliance meant that they were not even a match. Now, the focus shifts to who will face the Argentine side in the final. To decide that Morocco will be up against France at the Al Bayt Stadium in Qatar. 

While France have definitely done well to get to the semis even without the likes of Umtiti, Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante, it is Morocco who have surprised one and all and are looking to get to what would be a historic final appearance from an African nation for the first time. 

The French who surprised England in the semis where the English had much more possession of the ball but were not able to convert the chances would be looking to not give any to Morocco. The likes of Olivier Giroud, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann would play a crucial role in the making of French chances. 

Morocco, who converted the only chance that they got against Portugal, would be looking to pounce on the counter-attack opportunities through the likes of Ziyech, Hakimi and Boufal. The defence of the Atlas Lions have been one of the best as they have conceded just a solitary goal in the entire campaign so far.
