France vs Morocco FIFA Semi Final Team News

Defending champions France have been in great form since the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Apart from the match in Tunisia, they have won all their matches in the tournament so far. Morocco became the first African nation to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup after beating Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal 1-0. France, unlike other defending champions of the past, have been in a great touch for two consecutive World Cups.
They have two players among the top contenders for the Golden Boot – Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud. Giroud is also the all-time leading goalscorer for France. On paper, it shouldn’t be difficult for France to beat Morocco to reach a second consecutive final. In the quarter-finals, a determined second-half effort from the Atlas Lions added Portugal to their European hunt list.
After their victories over Belgium and Spain on penalties at Qatar 2022, Morocco had another historic day in their last match. They also have home advantage against France. Their highly defensive strategy has worked well for them so far.
