Morocco and France play in the semifinal of the FIFA World Cup 2022 on December 15, 2022, at 12:30 am IST, at Al Bayt Stadium. France faces tough competition.
In terms of attack, defense, and midfield performance, France has been outstanding. Ronaldo’s support for France should say a lot about how likely it is for Deschamps to win the championship again for French football.
Morocco stunned everyone by being the first African nation to reach the semifinals of a major international competition. If they make it to the last round, floors will be swept under them. As the team prepares for the upcoming competition on the basis of its team spirit and cohesion, its supporters pray for victory.
No team has been able to retain the trophy consecutively in the last 60 years. France is headed down that road, with only Morocco as the last barrier standing in its way.
Reguagui and his colleagues are deserving opponents because their side topped a table that included Croatia and Belgium. An unexpected surprise was the 3-0 penalty shootout triumph against Spain in the Round of 16, which was followed by the decisive victory over Portugal in the FIFA World Cup 2022 quarterfinals.
The formidable Moroccan defense is another element that will be present on the pitch. The stretch hasn’t allowed Bono to handle a lot of stress. A single goal was conceded versus Canada in the group stage due to a minor deflection that resulted in an own goal. Morocco’s defense has been quite outstanding in every other game.
Currently, Saiss is being evaluated for injuries. Regragui stated that no player is excluded. Therefore, there is a possibility that the formation will remain relatively unchanged. If Saiss skips the event, France will have an opportunity to overcome both the midfield and the defensive zone.
Giroud will lead the majority of the strike. He will be assisted by Mbappe, who is now tied with Messi atop the Golden Boot standings. Griezmann and Dembele can work to keep Lloris calm while Tchouameni defends the middle of the field.
Lloris understands that there is something magical about Morocco that makes it the best team in the tournament. The French captain says that the team finished at the top of the table because of its quality on and off the field, especially in terms of team spirit and cohesion.
Morocco will have a lot of support from its fans. The team is hungry and motivated for triumph, according to Regragui, who adds that it is a problem if a FIFA World Cup semi-finalist team is not hungry.
The match of France vs. Morocco is planned for Al Bayt Stadium on December 15, 2022, at 12:30 a.m. IST. France has a 63% chance of winning, while Morocco has a 13% chance of moving to the championship round.
The competition will be fascinating to observe. France and Morocco have played five times in friendly competition, with France claiming three victories and two draws.
