After a convincing display against the underdogs of this tournament, France won by a resounding 2-0 victory over Morocco. Labeled as the giant killers this season after eliminating the likes of Belgium from group stages and Spain and Portugal from the knockouts, the dream run of the African team ends here, and they surely can be proud of their valiant efforts.
The outcome of result is that the defending world champions are pitted against a rather high-spirited Argentine side, as players of La Blaugrana – Jules Kounde and Ousmane Dembele will be playing against the best player of their current club’s entire history, Lionel Messi.
Both players have been the vital cog for their national team due to their quality and commitment. The result of their efforts is that they reached the finals of the competition again which they won last time.
Jules Kounde and his fellow defender, Ibrahima Konate, were called in for a drug test after the match concluded. But one thing is for sure, that Sunday’s match will be a very interesting watch for the audience.
There are chances that the match can be a pragmatic one given that it’s the penultimate match of the whole tournament and both the teams will look to minimize their errors more than forcing one out of their opponents.
The key player for Didier Deschamp’s side is definitely Antoine Griezmann. The now Atletico and Ex-Barcelona forward has had a perplexing start to his season. He certainly showed quality but was still being benched so that the club didn’t have to pay a large sum of money to buy him after, as mentioned in the loan details.
Now, he has found his prominence with his national side, putting in great passes, and connecting midfield with the forwards along with an exemplary work rate. The most important player for their opponents is definitely- Lionel Messi, La Pulga, who for some is the best player of this tournament.
