Kylian Mbape Sends A Strong Message To Moroccan Star Achraf Hakimi After Painful Exit In World Cup

France ended Morocco's World Cup dream as goals from Theo Hernandez and Randal Kolo Muani gave the holders a 2-0 win in their semifinal clash and set up a showdown on Sunday with Lionel Messi's Argentina.

It looked like France might make short work of their opponents when Hernandez scored inside five minutes at Al Bayt Stadium, despite having a hostile crowd against them.

But Morocco, the first African and Arab team ever to reach the last four at a World Cup, fought on despite losing key players to injury only to see substitute Kolo Muani seal victory for Les Bleus with a late second.

It will be France's fourth World Cup final in seven editions and they are hoping to become the first team since Brazil 60 years ago to retain the trophy when they take on Argentina at Lusail Stadium on Sunday.

That will be billed as a showdown between Messi and his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Kylian Mbappe, but this match was not about the latter's individual brilliance.

However after the painful exit the Paris-Saint Germain and France star has therefore sends a strong message to his team mate Achraf Hakimi who is among the one best right backs in League 1. Mbape has told Hakimi that there is not need to be sad since they have made a big history of becoming the first African team to reach semi finals in World cup.

"Don't be sad bro, everybody is proud of what you did, you made history" tweeted Mbape
