Spain 2 Morocco 0 and the dream is over as France progress

France has the opportunity to make history as they reach the World Cup 2022 final, the fourth time in the last seven tournaments. 

France was quick, they were clinical, overpowering a good Moroccan side that gave as good as they got. But in the end goals count and Morroco failed to find the back of the net, despite some good chances. 

So this weekend, will it be the last chance for Lionel Messi to win the top trophy or will it be France’s chance to make history that will win the game? We are in for a corker, not to be missed final that is a fitting end to a wonderful and surprise-filled tournament. 

21:55 – Despite some heroic last-minute efforts, Morocco has failed to find the back of the net. Out but not disgraced and having made history, Morocco’s players can hold their heads high.

21:49 – Six minutes extra time added, can Morocco pull off a miracle and force a draw or is too late.

21:38 – Muani scores on 79 minutes only minutes after Morocco’s best chance. Is it game over?

21:04 – And the second half is underway with one change for Morocco as Mazraoui is injured. He is replaced by Bayern midfielder Attiyat Allah.

20:50 – Half time and the game remains France 1 – Morocco 0 

20:05 – Theo Hernandez latches on to a Mbappe rebound and volleys the ball over the heads of the two defenders standing on the goal line.

20:00 – Morocco gets the game underway.

The second world cup semi-final with France playing for a chance to be the only side to win back-to-back World Cups and Morocco playing to be the only African team to ever make the final. Everything to play for.
