Reigning Champions France Defeats Morocco To Set-Up A World Cup Final Against Argentina.

The reigning champions France, defeats Morocco 2-0 in the second semi-final game on Wednesday night to set up a final against Argentina on Sunday.

The Les Bleus are the first opposing team to score on the Atlas Lions this entire World Cup, as it took Theo Hernandez five minutes to open the scoring after a goalmouth scramble at the Al Bayt Stadium.

Jawad El Yamiq came close to scoring an equaliser with a stunning overhead kick, only for his acrobatic shot to be tipped onto the post by Hugo Lloris.

Morocco piled on the pressure late on but substitute Randal Kolo Muani who plays for Eintracht Frankfurt, proved to be France’s unlikely hero, scoring with his first touch of the match when Kylian Mbappe had a shot blocked 11 minutes from time.

Morocco go out with their heads held high; while France remained on course to become the first team since Brazil in 1962 to retain the world title.

France are one game away against Lionel Messi's Argentina in Sunday from making history by becoming back-to-back World Cup champions.
