France vs Morocco LIVE face each other in the semifinals, the penultimate step to glory. Reaching the dream of every footballer as a child. In this fight for survival, both teams play this Wednesday, December 14, at the Al Bayt stadium.
This duel begins at 2:00 p.m. (Peruvian time), France, whose star player is Kylian Mbappé, is the clear favorite.
Mbappé in the footsteps of Pelé
For Mbappé, who will turn 24 on December 20, two days after the World Cup final, it would be the chance to hit a definitive blow on the table and unofficially proclaim himself the best world player of the moment.
“I have planned my season based on this tournament, both physically and mentally,” said Mbappé before the quarter-final against England, whom his team beat 2-1.
“The World Cup is an obsession, it’s the competition of my dreams,” he added, making his objectives clear.
Mbappé would emulate Pelé should he beat Morocco in the semifinals.
Pele won two consecutive World Cups in 1958 and 1962, plus a third in 1970, the only player to have three titles to his name, and Mbappé, should he be crowned at Qatar-2022, would also win his second in a row, having triumphed at Russia-2018, when he was just 19 years old.
Mbappé leads the scoring charts with five goals.

Morocco is motivated
It won’t be easy for France to beat a super-motivated and morale-boosted Morocco with the toughest route among the semifinalists, having eliminated Belgium, Spain and Portugal.
French center-back Raphael Varane, who almost missed the World Cup due to an injury at Manchester United, warned on Monday that “the only objective is to win” the FIFA World Cup with the French national team.
The defender responded in this way to a question in relation to statements made by the president of his federation, Noel Le Great, who said before the tournament that the minimum objective was to reach the semifinals.
But Morocco, having become the first African country to reach the semifinals, an entire continent and the Arab world are dreaming of a new feat in the semifinal against France on Wednesday at the Al Bayt stadium.
