Two goals were enough to send France to the finals of this year’s FIFA World Cup, booking a date with Argentina.
Les Blues got their first goal through left back Theo Hernandez, who scored much earlier in the game – in fifth minute.
The second goal came through Kolo Muani, who tapped in the second in 79th minute. It was Muani’s first touch after being introduced to replace Barcelona left winger Ausmane Ndembele.
The two sides looked to be at par in terms of attacks launched, and ball possession even after France had already got their first goal. Morocco looked ruthless in the second half, launching lethal attacks from their forwards Hakim Ziyech and Sofiane Amrabat. However, the well-manned French defence proved once again to be impregnable against flurry of attacks from the Atlas Lions of Morocco.
Morocco, even though they’ve already set a history as the first African country to reach World Cup semi finals, wanted to set a date with Argentina, a match slated for Sunday 18th.
France are the current World Cup champions, and it will be the first time in history in sixty years if France will repeat their World Cup final match invincibility back to back.
Setting a date with Argentina will provide football fans across the world with a mouthwatering encounter which will pit the best dribbler of our generation, Lionel Messi, against the current fastest footballer, Kylian Mbappe. Interestingly, the two players ply their trade at Paris Saint Germain, in France.
