Football – World Cup 2022

The French made sure that it’s not “coming home” in the last round against their English opposition, as they won with a close 2:1 result, definitely dramatically though, and things could easily go in another direction.

They took the lead over Tchouameni in the 17th, but the English side was not holding back here and managed to bounce back from the penalty executed by Kane later in the 54th minute.

It wasn’t long before the French responded and scored another one over Giroud, while the Three Lions had their chance from another penalty later in the 84th, but this time, Kane was not up to the task, thus denying his nation an opportunity to compete for a long-awaited World Cup trophy.

The French should have no fresh injury problems, being led by Giroud and Mbappe, Griezmann, and Dembele in the offensive.

Morocco wrote a new page of history in their latest Qatar performance against much-favored Portugal, as they became the first African nation to reach the semi-finals, narrowly winning over the European powerhouse with a 1:0 result.

They scored the only one in this clash over En Nesyri in the late stage of the first part, holding their ground in the continuation, and managed to withstand the pressure, proving yet again that the bookmakers are undeservedly giving them an underestimated treatment in the tournament.

The Moroccans should miss central-backs Aguerd, Saiss due to injuries, while offensive Cheddira won’t play due to a suspension. Right-back Mazraoui and offensive midfielder Sabiri are both doubtful for now.

The bite too big to swallow

Once again Morocco is entering this clash as a severely underestimated side, but this time, it is highly unlikely that they will be able to deliver another surprise.

Their defensive line is crippled due to their heroic stand from the previous fixtures, and it is almost impossible to see them keeping up with the French in this condition.

The European outfit has an almost perfect offensive disposal, and at least in my opinion, it is only a matter of time before they will break their opposition, and move this encounter in the only logical direction.
