At the Al Bayt Stadium on Wednesday, France and Morocco will square off in the semifinals of the current 2022 FIFA World Cup. France is hoping for back-to-back World Cup triumphs after a successful title defense. After easily defeating Poland in the tournament’s round of 16, Les Blues faced England in the quarterfinals and prevailed 2-1 with two goals from Aurelien Tchouameni and Olivier Giroud.
This week, Les Blues will aim for triumph as they try to become the third team—along with Brazil and Italy—to successfully defend a World Cup championship. Morocco, on the other hand, has so far been the heartwarming tale of the 2022 World Cup as the African team shocked everyone by reaching the championship round. Their most recent victory in the competition came last Saturday when they defeated Portugal 1-0 thanks to a goal from Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri just before halftime.
