FRANCE – MOROCCO: WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE SEMI-FINAL?
The pressure is starting to mount for the Moroccans. Tonight will be held the long awaited meeting between Morocco and France, for this semi-final of the World Cup 2022. But what emerges from the Moroccan fans a few hours before this match is above all the pride of having made history. But why not dream of ousting France and reaching a World Cup final for the first time in their history?
MORE THAN A MATCH, A REAL DUEL
Yesterday, on the eve of the clash against Les Bleus, Hoalid Regragui, the Moroccan coach presented himself in a press conference. Determined and confident, the Moroccan coach warned the French team. Indeed, for him, it is more than a match. The 47-year-old native of Corbeil-Essonnes is currently at the head of a sparkling group that has been enjoying success after success for several months. In a press conference on the eve of the semi-final, he spoke about this very special match for him: » I have dual nationality. It’s an honor and a pleasure to play France, but it’s only soccer. Me, playing France, Brazil, etc… What I want is just to qualify. What interests me is to win and play the best team in the world..
Remember that the Atlas Lions finished first in their group, ahead of another semi-finalist: Croatia. After a remarkable performance, they defeated Spain in the 1/8th final on penalties and Portugal in the ¼ final. The question now will be whether playing 30 minutes more than the Blues will be detrimental to the Moroccan group. This is what we will be watching with great attention from this evening. The match will be live at 20H on TF1.
