France will meet Morocco in the semifinals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup after winning their heavyweight clash in the final eight with England.
France will start as favourites but Morocco are used to being underdogs after knocking out European opponents in Belgium, Spain and Portugal on their dazzling unbeaten run.
The winners will face Argentina or Croatia in the final after the two-time winners saw off the Netherlands on penalties and the 2018 finalists ousted title favourites Brazil.
