World Cup France Morocco

A place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup final awaits for the defending champions France and the tournament’s surprise package Morocco. The two teams square off in the second semi-final tomorrow evening with The Atlas Lions looking to continue their fairytale story after becoming the first African team in history to reach the World Cup semi-finals. We look at these two teams’ head-to-head record and their previous meeting.

France v Morocco Head-To-Head Record

France and Morocco have faced off five times so far, which were all in international friendlies. They have never met in the World Cup and this will be their first meeting at the showpiece event. Les Bleus have dominated this fixture but Morocco have always remained competitive with another tight contest expected tomorrow.

France will be looking to become the first team to defend their World Cup crown in 60 years while Morocco look to become the first African side to reach the final or even win it. Either way, both sides are looking to create history.

Their Previous Match

The last time these two nations played against each other was in 2007 in an entertaining friendly match that ended 2-2.

Morocco drew first blood through Tarik Sektioui after just eight minutes before the French hit back with a goal from Sidney Govou. Samir Nasri then put Les Blues ahead in the 75th minute with a strike from outside of the box but Morocco dug deep and found an equaliser with just six minutes remaining through Youssef Mokhtari.
