Led by goals from Theo Hernandez (5) and Kolo Muani (79), defending champions France beat Morocco 2-0 at Qatar’s Al Bayt Stadium on Wednesday to reach the final of the 2022 FIFA Football World Cup.

The World Champions took an early lead when an acrobatic half-volley from Hernandez beat the Atlas Lions’ goalkeeper Yassine Bounou just five minutes into the first half.
