France became the first defending World champions to reach the semi-finals since Brazil in 1998 with Didier Deschamps’ men seeking back-to-back championships something that hasn’t been done for 60 years.

Les Bleus ran out 2-1 winners over England with Antoine Griezmann becoming the first French player to provide two assists in a knockout round game of the World Cup since Dominique Rocheteau against Italy in 1986 (round of 16). “In these very important games it always comes down to very small details and luckily tonight it went our way and we did what we could to make sure that we went all the way and won the game. You need a bit of luck sometimes,” Deschamps reflected afterwards.

They must bring their A-game against Africa’s first semi-finalist. Morocco are enjoying a historic tournament to remember. The Atlas Lions have beaten Belgium, Spain and Portugal to get this far.

“We are now becoming the team that everyone loves in this World Cup because we are showing that even if you don’t have as much talent and money then you can succeed,” head coach Walid Regragui said after their 1-0 win over Portugal. “We have made our people and our continent so happy and proud. When you watch Rocky, you want to support Rocky Balboa and I think we are the Rocky of this World Cup. I think now the world is with Morocco.”

Youssef En-Nesyri bagged the decisive goal against Portugal to create history, with his monstrous leap outfoxing a flapping Diogo Costa between the sticks. Yahia Attiyat Allah’s whipped delivery was tantalising, and En-Nesyri rose highest to net what will go down in history as a nation-defining header.

It has now been revealed that En-Nesyri jumped a quite unbelievable 9ft 1in in the air. To give some context behind the salmon-esque leap, Cristiano Ronaldo recorded an 8ft 4in jump during his famous header for Juventus against Sampdoria back in 2019 — one of his most iconic finishes.
