Walid Regragui, Morocco’s coach, says that conceding so early in the game is the only thing he regrets about the team’s semi-final defeat to France. Messi’s Argentina
In the fifth minute, France defender Theo Hernandez scored to give the defending champions a 1-0 lead. However, Regragui was pleased with his team’s second-half performance.
Regragui stated, “We improved.”
We provided numerous opportunities. Unfortunately, our final third was not clinical.
In the 79th minute, Randal Kolo Muani scored France’s second goal to make it 2-0.
However, the Morocco coach acknowledged that his team was “proud of itself” and that “we did cause them (France) problems.”
With goals from Hernandez and Muani scored by Kylian Mbappé, France defeated Africa’s first semi-finalist in front of the country’s president, Emmanuel Macron.
When Mbappé led France to the World Cup title in Russia in 2018, he became a global sensation. Now, Mbappé faces the 35-year-old Messi, who has dominated the game with Cristiano Ronaldo for 15 years. Mbappé has a chance to establish himself as the sport’s new superstar.
For some’s purposes, that makes it the fantasy last, with France hoping to turn into the primary group to hold the title since Brazil in 1962 and Argentina determined to win soccer’s definitive award in what is probably going to be Messi’s last World Cup.
Hugo Lloris, the goalkeeper for France, stated, “We need all our strength, all our energy to face a very competitive team with one of the legends in the sport, Messi.” World News Sports
