The FIFA World Cup 2022 is almost over after the quarterfinal games were completed. Argentina, Croatia, France, and Morocco are the four groups that have advanced to the semifinals of the championship game. The first African nation, Morocco, has advanced to the semifinals. Argentina will play against Croatia in the opening match of the FIFA World Cup 2022 semifinal round on Wednesday, December 14. On Thursday, December 15, France will play Morocco. On December 18, the semi-two final’s winners will square off in the championship match. 

At Lusail Iconic Stadium, the first semifinal between Argentina and Croatia will take place. Al Bayt Stadium will host the second semifinal between France and Morocco. On Saturday, December 10, Morocco overcame Portugal to advance to the FIFA World Cup semifinals as the first African nation. The 10-man Morocco victory over Cristiano Ronaldo’s star-studded Portugal in regulation time at the Al Thumama Stadium was one of the biggest upsets of the FIFA World Cup.  

Walid Cheddira received two yellow cards throughout the day while the Morocco team was also given a late red card. Cristiano Ronaldo broke down in tears when Portugal was eliminated, and his dreams of capturing the major title in his fifth World Cup were dashed. Ronaldo left the pitch and headed for the tunnel as soon as the final horn blew, crying. Cristiano Ronaldo entered the game six minutes into the second half but was unable to prevent his team’s loss. 

Though this is their World Cup meeting, Argentina and Croatia have never met in the knockout stages. Argentina, who has never lost in the semifinals, wants to get to the World Cup championship game.
