The 2022 World Cup final will feature France versus Argentina after the defending champions overcame Morocco 2-0 on Wednesday.
After a goalmouth scuffle, Theo Hernandez scored after only five minutes.

Late in the game, Morocco increased the pressure, but France’s place in Sunday’s championship final was assured when substitute Randal Kolo Muani scored with his first touch.
Since the start of the 2018 World Cup, France has won all seven of its knockout games without ever having to play extra time.
Only Brazil from 1958 to 1970 (nine) has a longer winning streak in knockout games in the tournament’s history (excluding all group stages but including group play-off matches)
A fourth time, France has advanced to the World Cup final.
Since 1998, those appearances have all occurred (1998, 2006, 2018, and 2022), which is twice as numerous as those of any other country during this time.
