France qualifies to FIFA world cup 2022 finals
France advanced to the FIFA World Cup 2022 final for the fourth time in the last seven tournaments after defeating Morocco 2-0 in the semifinals at Qatar’s Al Bayt Stadium.
France’s quest to repeat as World Cup champion reached a climax today when Les Bleus defeated Morocco, 2-0, on goals from Théo Hernandez and Randal Kolo Muani to advance to the World Cup final.
France became the first nation in more than two decades to qualify for consecutive finals after denying tournament favourite Morocco an improbable berth in the final match. Brazil, which made three straight from 1994 to 2002, was the most recent.
France vs Morocco in highlights
France took an early 1-0 lead thanks to a strike from inside the box from Theo Hernández. It was Morocco’s second goal of the World Cup, the first being an own goal. Morocco then attempted to score several times but were unsuccessful. The team had more than 60% of the possession in the game, but France won with a late goal in the 79th minute from substitute Randal Kolo Muani.
The French team will face Argentina in the finals on Sunday, 18th December, 2022. Meanwhile Morocco will take on Croatia on Saturday in the third-place game
