Theo Hernandez’s opening goal and Randal Kolo Muani’s late goal sent France into a sturdy World Cup final facing Argentina, ending Morocco’s fantastic journey with an exciting 2-0 victory in FIFA World Cup 2022, Qatar. France will be quite delighted to be the first reigning champions to advance to consecutive finals after Brazil in 2002.
Theo Hernandez secured a goal after just five minutes following an altercation in the goalmouth. Hugo Lloris saved Jawad El Yamiq from tying the score with a spectacular overhead kick by deflecting it onto the post. Late in the contest, Morocco put more pressure on France, but Randal Kolo Muani, a substitute, scored to secure France’s spot in Sunday’s championship final.
During this historic FIFA World Cup game in Qatar, French football player Kylian Mbappe embraced his Moroccan opponent Achraf Hakimi. Football fans were thrilled to see the sportsmen’s togetherness after the scene made headlines around the world. Although various online football betting sites predict Argentina lifting the trophy, France’s passion and aggression to defend their championship cannot be overlooked.
France can now look ahead to Sunday’s battle, where they will attempt to become the third team to defend their championship after Brazil and Italy successfully.
