FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 - France vs Morocco at the Semifinals

Tags: Fifa, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, France, Morocco, Qatar, soccer.
Posted on 14 December 2022 by "T".

France will face Morocco in the semifinals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup after winning their intense clash in the quarterfinals with England.

France will start as favorites but Morocco are already quite used to being the underdogs after knocking out European opponents Belgium, Spain and Portugal on their impressive unbeaten run.

The eventual winners will face Argentina or Croatia in the final after the two-time champions booted the Netherlands on penalties and the 2018 finalists ousted title favorites Brazil.

Morocco will face France in the semifinals at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor on Wednesday, December 14.

Key Points:
Morocco will become the first African team to play in a World Cup semifinal.

This semifinal match marks the first competitive meeting between the teams, but Morocco have never beaten France in seven previous friendly games since 1975.

Morocco spent a huge deal of energy in their win against Spain and Portugal in this World Cup, and with some players suffering injuries, the game on Wednesday will surely be a real test of their stamina and durability. Their match against Spain went to penalties while they endured a wild second half against Portugal.

Meanwhile, France has been able to take care of knockout games without any extra time and should be much fresher as they enter the semifinal.

France may have fewer injury issues and more attack weapons, but Morocco will have the crowd supporting them at the Al Bayt Stadium, encouraging them to pull off another upset.

The African side, the Atlas Lions, have become one of the best-supported teams in Qatar, and they will surely benefit from a huge backing on Wednesday as the first Arab team to reach the semifinals in World Cup history.

what to say about this game,then that we already know it!france is favorite,but we can see how morocco can play with any team on this world cup,no matter is it to win in regular time or on penalties!france have some problems with injuries,but we will see what this will bring to them!maybe another suprise from morocco or clear win for france and big final with argentina!hope to see another good game like yesterday!

Clearly a David vs Goliath game. If Morocco conseads an early goal, i guess they got slaughterd. So they have to rely on their strong defence, to keep the score even, for a long time, and maybe score a goal out of a counter attack or a set piece. Surely an uphill battle.
 dule-vu14/12/2022 12:26:09 GMT
yeah,all depend how game will go,will we have early goal or not!if france doesnt score in first half,morocco have good chances,because france will be fun for goal,they will make some mistakes and then will be hard to score!if we will have early goal,hope that game will be even better to watch!

What I like about Morocco is that they are organized at the back, it is difficult to break the lines of a very tight defense, they look for the exact moment to score and then close to sleep the game, it would be nice if there was a goal in the first half.
 dule-vu14/12/2022 15:50:20 GMT
We will see!

I think about this match not to miss because I am in 4th place in the leaderboard for three matches and I would like to end the competition of betting on the world cup minimum in the top 5 so that there is $ 50 to be paid ... France is rather a favorite, but will he win... or maybe there will be another extra-time and penalties and a sensation...

I have 1:0 correc result,but dont think that will stay like that!
 geseco1215/12/2022 23:51:43 GMT
although france won, it was a very good match, morocco fought until the end and kept nothing, france deserved it, now comes the final with argentina, it will be a tremendous match, mbappe vs messi, although with different ages.
 CALICUL16/12/2022 00:10:45 GMT
Morocco did not manage the surprise and the last world champion won.
 geseco1218/12/2022 04:34:12 GMT
today morocco lost, but that does not take away the great world cup, I hope they continue like this showing that they can go even further in the world cup, the games are won with hard work and not with names, once again soccer proves it.
 dule-vu18/12/2022 09:47:47 GMT
didnt think that morocco would lose on easy way,especially when they are first time as some african nation in this situation and that they can make history with this kind of result,so did expect much more from them and that they can score more or at least that they dont get this number of goals!
