Football Fixed Odds 1×2
Only Brazil in 1962 and Italy in 1938 have ever successfully defended the World Cup, but France can now join them after defeating Morocco 2-0 in a spirited match to get to the final.
Didier Descamps’ squad rode their luck at times and were sturdy rather than stylish throughout, depending on some tenacious and even desperate defense to withstand a Morocco team urged on by their indefatigable supporters.
This is similar to how they performed against England in the quarterfinal round.
Although Morocco gave them numerous scares until Kolo Muani’s late goal, France, which was being watched here by President Emmanuel Macron, was effective when winning in Russia four years ago, and the early goal allowed them to sit back again here.
But considering that France has already advanced to three finals in their last four major championships, it is hard to contest Deschamps’ accomplishments. Brazil last made it to back-to-back finals in 1994, 1998, and 2002.
Weekend Fixed Matches Injuries
Prior to Wednesday, no opponent had ever scored against Morocco in this World Cup, and their lone goal came via an own goal by Nayef Aguerd in their victory against Canada in the group stage.
Four players had questionable fitness before into this game, including Aguerd (groin), yet coach Walid Regragui picked all four in his starting lineup, along with Noussair Mazraoui (sickness), Sofyan Amrabat (back), and Romain Saiss (thigh).
Aguerd did not make it through the warmup, requiring Morocco to make a last-minute substitution of Achraf Dari, while Saiss played for barely 21 minutes before being substituted due to injury.
Hernandez’s first goal may have benefited from the last-minute substitution since Antoine Griezmann was able to find space after Jawad El Yamiq’s botched interception to assist bring about the breakthrough.
To be fair to Amrabat, he recovered the ball five times in the first 15 minutes alone. However, Morocco posed a constant danger moving forward.
Morocco ended the game with 61% possession while France sat back, yet they were more exposed at the back than at any previous time during the tournament.
In the end, France was able to eliminate them. Mbappe was very quiet that evening, but one of his signature runs resulted in a shot that luckily broke for Kolo Muani to conclude the game.
Hernandez’s exhilarating competition goes on. He started the competition on the sidelines. He arrived when his older brother, Lucas Hernandez, was hurt.
He unnecessarily gave up a late penalty that Harry Kane skied over the crossbar, nearly costing France their victory against England in the quarterfinals. And now France has advanced to the championship.
When Theo Hernandez is worried, there is never silence. Since Vava scored in the second minute of Brazil’s 5-2 victory over France in 1958, his goal—a well-executed volley—came after just four minutes and 39 seconds in a World Cup quarterfinal.
It was his third goal-related contribution to this tournament after two assists in the group stage, which ties him with Raphael Guerreiro for the most by a defender.
When he took on Sofiane Boufal in the 27th minute, he was fortunate not to give up another penalty. Although Boufal looked to have touched the ball before Hernandez tackled him, Canadian VAR Drew Fischer opted not to step in.
Boufal was indeed arrested. The 25-year-old, who now has the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of his brother, the starting left-back on France’s successful squad from four years ago, had yet another lucky break in what has turned into a roller coaster campaign.
France: Hugo Lloris 7, Jules Kounde 7, Raphael Varane 7, Ibrahima Konate 8, Theo Hernandez 7, Aurelien Tchouameni 8, Youssouf Fofana 7, Ousmane Dembele 7, Antoine Griezmann 8, Kylian Mbappe 7, Olivier Giroud 6.
BEST: France’s Antoine Griezmann. Compared to any player on either side, he created four more opportunities, and his deft movement in the run-up to Hernandez’s opening helped France make a breakthrough early on.
France’s Olivier Giroud is the worst. missed a golden opportunity to put France up 2-0 in the first half, and Les Bleus looked better when Thuram was brought in as a replacement in a tactical change.
Hernandez’s goal was the fastest scored in a World Cup semifinal since Vava scored in the second minute of Brazil’s 1958 semifinal against France. En-Nesyri is the only player since at least 1966 to play at least 60 minutes in a World Cup game with less than five touches.
Since Youri Djorkaeff generated exactly 20 opportunities in 1998, Griezmann is the only French player to generate 20 chances in a single men’s World Cup.
Since Alain Giresse generated 24 opportunities in 1986, Griezmann is the only French player to have more than 20 chances created at a men’s World Cup.
Kolo Muani scored the opening goal of the match with his touch.
