France and Morocco will face off in the second semi final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup at Al Bayt Stadium, Al Khor (Qatar) on Wednesday, 14th December, at 2pm ET/7pm GMT.

Les Bleus will play their seventh world cup semi-final while Morocco will play their first semi-final.

France is coming off a spectacular 2-1 win against England, while Morocco pulled off a huge upset to knock out Portugal by 1-0 to become the first African side to reach the semi final of a World Cup,

Overview :

Reigning champion France will be facing unlikely semifinalists Morocco. The North African team have shocked the world and defied World Cup odds to reach this stage in becoming the first African team and have all of the neutrals behind them.

Though France beat the Three Lions 2-1, but they have to relied on Harry Kane missing a penalty to win it, the story could have been much different had Harry Kane’s late penalty not sailed over Hugo Lloris’ bar.

As for Morocco, nobody expected them to reach Semi final of the World Cup, But beating Belgium, Spain, and Portugal to reach the semifinal is not an easy feat— and there’s no way you can say they don’t deserve it.

It will be seventh World Cup semi-final for France. After losing their first three, each one they have contested since – in 1998, 2006 and 2018 – France has ended in winning it.

Given the previous three World cup winners before France crashed out in the group stage (Italy in 2010, Spain in 2014 and Germany in 2018),
France is relieved to have avoided humiliation – but Deschamps said that they still have ambitions to satisfy.

“We’ve got to the semis, closer to the final, and this was an important achievement, so we can believe in ourselves, but we have a big game on Wednesday,” he said.

“We can be satisfied with what we’ve done so far, even though we want to go further. In the past, the world champions haven’t always done well in World Cups and we’ve overcome that challenge, but we have an important game on Wednesday.”
