The hope of Moroccans to win FIFA World Cup 2022 was broken by France after they win over Morocco in semi-final.
As the last semifinal game ends, the stage is set for a France-Argentina World Cup final. The decisive contest will happen Sunday.
France will play Argentina in the World Cup final after defeating Morocco 2-0 in an enthralling semifinal Wednesday to stay on course to retain the title and end the fairytale run of the North Africans in Qatar.
Theo Hernandez scored in the fifth minute in a perfect start for the holders, who would have been looking for an early strike to silence the rowdy Moroccan support at the Al Bayt Stadium and dent the confidence of their team.
But it still proved a close-fought match as Morocco overcame injury blows and showed no deference to France’s reputation, taking the game to them in a gallant effort that added to the glowing reputation they have earned at the tournament.
After Morocco lost his match over France this is what Kylian Mbappé told his PSG teammate Achraf Hakimi :
"Don't be sad bro, everybody is proud of what you did, you made history"
