France will take on Morocco in the blockbuster semi-final of the World Cup on Thursday. Didier Deschamps’ side knocked out the star-studded England team in emphatic fashion in the quarter-final and are looking like the team to beat.
Despite suffering several injuries, the defending champions have fared very well in the tournament so far. Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud have terrorised defences. In fact, Mbappe has scored five goals so far in the tournament and is the strongest contender for the Golden Boot. Moreover, Aurélien Tchouaméni’s sensational goal from outside the box against England showed the sheer quality of Les Bleus.
Walid Regragui’s side will be unperturbed by the daunting task ahead of them and will aim to extend their dream run at the World Cup. The high-flying Atlas Lions stunned Portugal on Saturday. However, their captain Romain Saiss is a huge doubt for the high-stakes clash as he was stretchered off the field 57 minutes into the win over Portugal. It remains to be seen if Saiss can recover in time for what will be the match of his life.
