France lead Morocco 2-0 in the 2022 World Cup semi-finals and are closing in on facing Argentina in Sunday's final

Iran PressMiddle East: It took Theo Hernandez just five minutes to open the scoring after a goalmouth scramble. Jawad El Yamiq came close to scoring an equalizer with a stunning overhead kick, only for his acrobatic shot to be tipped onto the post by Hugo Lloris.

Morocco piled up the pressure late on but France all but secured their place in Sunday’s showpiece final when substitute Randal Kolo Mulani scored with his first touch of the match in the 79th minute.

France did enough, as they have throughout the tournament really. They are one game away from making history; Morocco have already done that.
