Not since Brazil in 2002 has a team reached the World Cup final twice in a row.
France wants to be the one to repeat the same achievement of the Selecao, but in the semi-finals of the World Cup at the El Beit Stadium on Wednesday (Wednesday), the Moroccan team is facing them, which has already made history when it became the first Arab and African team to qualify for the last four, and wants to continue the magic journey and amaze the whole world once again to schedule a meeting with Argentina this coming Sunday.
The reigning world champion's last three appearances in the semifinals have ended in victory, and if she achieves a fourth in a row, the tricolor will be one more win away from equaling an achievement that to this day belongs only to Italy (1934 and 1938) and Brazil (1958 and 1962): a second consecutive victory in the world cup
Following the illness of Dayo Opamakanu and Adrien Rabiot, who did not recover in time, Didier Deschamps was forced to make two changes to the 11 as Ibrahima Konata and Youssef Popana were given the starting XI.
Ousmane Dembele and Olivia Giroud start again alongside Kylian Mbappe with Jules Conde and Theo Hernandez serving as defenders.
Morocco, the only team that has not yet conceded a goal from an opposing player in the current tournament, hopes to record its first ever victory over France in the most important game in its history.
Coach Waleed Raghraghi sprung a surprise by fielding three stoppers, with the doubtful Roman Saiss and Nayef Agar coming on alongside Jawad Al Yameek.
