Morocco World Cup 2022 squad, predicted line-up versus France and star players

Morocco are making their sixth appearance at the World Cup in Qatar.

They qualified for the first time in 1970 and enjoyed their best-ever performance on their second appearance in 1986, when they made it to the round of 16.

This time they have bettered their performance by becoming the first African nation to reach the World Cup semifinals and are now gunning to take a step further. They finished as leaders in Group F, which also contained European heavyweights Belgium and Croatia.

They then beat Spain and Portugal respectively in their first two knockout games. Next, they are set to face reigning world champions France on Wednesday to battle for a final spot.
