Home   /   France hunt down Atlas Lions in Qatar to set up 2022 FIFA World Cup final against Argentina

France beat Morocco 2-0 in an end-to-end 2022 FIFA World Cup semi-final to book their place alongside Argentina in Sunday’s final showdown.  

The holders took the lead inside the opening five minutes through Theo Hernandez. The full-back was on hand to latch onto a rebound after Kylian Mbappe’s shot was blocked off the line.

It was the first goal an opposition player had scored against Yassine Bounou between the sticks for Morocco. 

Randal Kolo Muani came off the bench to replace Ousmane Dembele and doubled France’s lead with his first touch off the game. 

The late call-up to the squad slotted in from close range after a blocked Mbappe shot fell kindly for him.

Morocco had most of the ball and even fashioned a few good chances while France opted to cede possession and hit the Atlas Lions on the counter.

France skipper Hugo Lloris made a big save on the stroke of half time to keep Jawad El Yamiq’s acrobatic effort through a crowd of bodies in front of him.

Jules Kounde also produced a vital block in stoppage time to give Lloris and France their first clean sheet of the tournament.
