France vs Morocco preview

Although all the talk prior to the quarter-final was around the competition’s top scorer Kylian Mbappe, it was the more experienced pair of Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud who combined for the winning goal against England. Didier Deschamps is blessed with a squad full of quality but there were some questions defensively around Dayot Upemecano and Theo Hernandez, Les Bleus gave away two penalties and it could have been more. Although France will expect to dominate the ball in the semi-final, the defense will need to stay alert against a Morocco side that looks excellent on the counterattack. 

Morocco have already achieved a sporting miracle, but they won’t want it to end one step short of the final. Walid Regragui only took charge of his country three months ago and they have already gone further than any other African side. The big names in the side, Hakim Ziyech, Achraf Hakimi and Youssef El-Nesyri have all performed but it is the collective spirit that has been most impressive with some of the lesser-known players coming in and excelling. Sofyan Amrabat has been one of the standout midfielders of the tournament and Yassine Bounou in goal has looked imperious. 

Featuring some of the best players in the world facing the most incredible underdog story of recent World Cups, the France vs Morocco live stream has something for everyone to enjoy

France vs Morocco team news

France are a well oiled machine at this tournament. Even when they don't play particularly well, such as against England, they still get the job done. So it's no wonder that Didier Deschamps has elected not to switch things up much against Morocco. There are just two changes to the side that eliminated the Three Lions. Ibrahima Konate and Youssouf Fofana come into the team at the expense of Adrien Rabiot and Dayot Upamecano who were both reported to be struggling with illness in the build up to this match. 

Morocco fans will be pleased to see that West Ham's Nayef Aguerd and Bayern Munich's Noussair Mazraoui are both in the starting XI after missing the quarter-final victory over Portugal. Because of this Yahya Attiat-Allah and Selim Amallah drop to the bench, which does feel harsh considering the herculean effort put in by the whole squad to knock out Portugal. Unfortunately, Walid Cheddira misses out through suspension after picking up a red card in the last match. 

Here's how they line up: 

France: Lloris, Kounde, Varane, Konate, Fofana, Hernandez, Tchouameni, Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe, Giroud.

Morocco: Bounou, Hakimi, Saiss, Aguerd, El Yamiq, Mazraoui, Amrabat, Ounahi, Ziyech, Boufal, En-Nesyri.
