Morocco could not beat France in the semifinal.

France had scored early through Theo Hernandez in 5 minutes to put Les Bleus one foot into the final. Morocco had so many opportunities to score against France but did not use them. They even had more of the ball and they still failed to win. France were aiming to make their second consecutive final appearance.

Whereas Morocco wanted to continue their dream run by becoming the first African team to reach the final. However all hope was lost as France added a second through Randal Kolo Muani to secure a final place for France. France once again demonstrated that they do not have to be the better team to win matches. They will look to use this to their advantage when they face Argentina in the final.
