Morocco is a team on the rise and they have made some impressive progress in recent years. They have a very talented roster and they have some very experienced players in their ranks, even though the team was not popular prior to the Qatar game.

The Moroccan team has been one of the surprise packages of the tournament, having made it to the semi-finals through skillful performances from the group stages through the quarter finals, the first African team to make it that far in the FIFA World Cup History. They have shown their resilience and determination throughout their run in the tournament and have earned the respect of the footballing world from Africa across the Arabic world and the entire Asia. The team had only featured 6 times in FIFA World Cup and has not gone this far just like no African team has done so.

France, on the other hand, are one of the favourites to lift the trophy. They have been one of the most consistent teams in the tournament, and one of the most successful teams in the history of football. France currently hold the World Cup title after winning the game in 2018 and had featured in 16 world cup matches, winning in 1998 and 2018. They are always a tough opponent to face. Their star-studded line-up is capable of winning any match on their day. They have dominated their group and knockout matches, and as one of the best teams in the world can take home the golden cup.

In terms of tactics, the match between Morocco and France is expected to be a tight affair. Both teams will look to play a very attacking game. Morocco will look to use their pace and skill to press high up the pitch and create chances for their attackers. France, on the other hand, will look to play a possession-based game, looking to control the tempo of the game and create chances through quick passing and movement.

Both teams' defensive solidity will be put to the test, as both teams have been difficult to break down in their previous matches. Morocco will look to exploit France's weakness in defence, while France will look to use their attacking prowess to dominate the match.

In terms of individual battles, both teams have some very talented players. The midfield battle between Morocco's Hakim Ziyech and France's Youssouf Fofana is sure to be an intriguing one. Both players have been in top form throughout the tournament, and they will be looking to outshine each other in this match.

Star players like Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and O. Giroud of France have all it takes to make a difference in the game. On the other hand, Morocco can boast of its captain, Romain Saiss, and other players like Achraf Hakimi, Sofiane Boufal, Youssef En-Nesyri who have played key roles in the progress of the team from the knockout stages to the quarter finals win. Meanwhile the injured Morocco midfielder, Amine Harit, is reportedly back to the team to feature in the semi-final match tonight. Players to be absent from both teams in tonight's game is not yet certain.

Considering fans support, Morocco takes the lead. Their performance in the ongoing FIFA 2022 World Cup Qatar has seen a drift from football as a game to a game of religious and racial touch. Most Arabs believe a win for Morocco is a thumbs up for their race, while others support Morocco for religious reasons.

Meanwhile, Morocco being the first African team to make it to the semi-final of the FIFA World Cup has the dream of African world cup win in their hands. Therefore, most Africans are behind Morocco in the game. France has a huge fan as well as it is the only hope of the Western World in the tournament.
