The second day of the quarterfinals has finished, with Morocco and France moving on to the semifinals.

Let's take a quick look at what happened on the second day of the quarterfinals:

Morocco vs Portugal
Outcome: Morocco 1 - Portugal 0

Another unexpected outcome at the World Cup quarterfinals!

Youssef En-Nesyri (pictured) scores the winning shot as Cristiano Ronaldo exits Qatar tournament.

En-Nesyri, who twice headed over the crossbar, jumped higher than both Portugal defender Ruben Dias and goalkeeper Diogo Costa to place Morocco ahead in the 42nd minute.

Morocco became the first African nation to reach the World Cup semifinals as Youssef En-Nesyri's first-half winner added Portugal to the list of shocked teams in Qatar.

Portugal team captain Cristiano Ronaldo was transferred to the bench at the start of the team's second straight game. He got into the field in the second half after Portugal fell behind, but it wasn't enough to make a comeback.

England vs France
England 1 - France 2

Olivier Giroud (pictured) scored the winner and Harry Kane missed a crucial late penalty as France beat England 2-1 in a dramatic World Cup quarterfinal on Saturday.

Aurelien Tchouameni gave France a first-half lead only for Kane to equalize from the spot about nine minutes into the second half.

For long stretches of the game, England was the better side at Al Bayt Stadium, but out of blue, France gained the upper hand when Giroud headed home with 11 minutes left.

With Brazil being eliminated on Friday, France is now definitely the favorite to retain their crown as they prepare to face Morocco in the semifinals.

France remains on track to be the first team since Brazil in 1962 to win back-to-back World Cups.

France - Morocco will be a match between two teams that have played with great ambition until now and that will try to reach at the final of this World Cup and after a cautious match, because it is very important and cannot be played as a joke. The interest is enormous and it will be something very serious.

Another match with a great unknown type, like almost every one at this world championship. I wonder if Morocco is able to make another sensation and advance to the final, or will they be tired and succumb to the favored France... As usual, the great unknown about the result...

Morocco can if it is not stolen by the referees...

morocco is surprising everyone, if they play a tidy game and as they have been doing they can eliminate france, it sounds a little crazy, but what morocco has done throughout the world cup is impressive.

my opinion is that Morocco will play with fear and will not be able to make a big match. So far they have been brave and played beautifully, but this time it is the semi-finals of the world cup and here they can have big emotions that will make them lose

It seems to me that France is the best team at this world championship, and that Morocco has come very far as far as its potential is concerned and is betting France will win here, after all, they are the current world champions, and most likely they will try to defend the title. Morocco will be exhausted and I doubt that they will last the whole match tightly defending.

they have again some problems with injuries,but they can lose game,we can see that they didnt have every clear game,so who know what morocco can do to them!ofcourse they will take most of time do defence them,but maybe something new they will offer tomorrow,especially if they get some early goal!
