Reigning champions, France have qualified for the final of the 2022 World Cup after overcoming Morocco 2-0 in the semi final on Wednesday.

However, Theo Hernandez opened scoring for the reigning champions with a well taken finish in eh 5th minute to the delight of their technical crew.

Morocco also lost the clearly unfit Romain Saiss to injury before half-time but, roared on by their fanatical support, they came close to drawing level, especially when Jawad El Yamiq’s overhead kick was kept out by a combination of the post and France keeper Hugo Lloris.

Didier Deschamps’ side always threatened on the break and so it proved as the lurking Muani finally broke Morocco’s resistance late on.
