Moroccan colonial retribution arc has a chance to continue but it surely won't, right?

Mbappe vs. Hakimi should be interesting. I think the Moroccan defense is really overrated, they'll concede in the opening 15 minutes and will be chasing an equalizer leaving them vulnerable at the back. France to score at least four. Morocco maybe gets one from a set piece.

I fear for what I'll witness in Paris :lol:

Already saw some big fights between Moroccans and the police at the Champs-Elysées on Saturday.

Overrated? They have kept all of Belgium,Croatia, Spain and Portugal goalless.

They may struggle in this game due to injuries but their defense has proven their ability over multiple games.

I've seen people call it the best defense of the tournament but I think the fact they conceded so little has more to do with how the team sets up. Ounahi, Amrabat and Bono have more to do with it imho.

Belgium, Croatia and Spain are really toothless teams when it comes to scoring. Portugal would have scored if their coach hadn't panicked and started making Hail Mary type substitutions around the 50 minute mark.

I don't think their defense is superior to Croatia or France. The way they defend as a unit, as in how the team keeps shape and applies the correct kind of pressure is surely impressive, but people overrate the qualities of their defenders.

In my book, how the team sets up is part of the team's defense. And a major part of why we have such a horrible defensive record in Serie A this season.

I hope Hakimi scores 3 goals and wears a flag of Inter when the game finishes

Nothing hurt more than when we sold him

Are there any confirmed players for Morocco that will miss the match due to injury?

hoping for a morocco win, but with all their injuries i give them really small chances... i mean, even if they were healthy they probably wouldnt have a big chance... anyway, hoping for a competitive game.

Would be great if Marocco wins in the end, it would be the greatest achievement in history of football.
