Women's World Cup: France Women

France is a team who is no longer new when it comes to the quarterfinals, as they reached the quarterfinals in the last two editions. Additionally, during the 2011 edition of the World Cup, France were able to finish at the fourth. Those previous records are enough proof that they are a threat coming into this game. However, they opened their campaign underwhelmingly, but they are fortunate that they won against Brazil. It was a 2-1 win for them, that made amend from that underwhelming opener against Jamaica. Moreover, France had a dominating 6-3 win against Panama on their final match, that gives them a confidence here. Actually, France lost only once in their last ten games across all contests this year, which is a good sign for them.

Wendie Renard, and Eugenie Le Sommer are both expected to return to their squad, after being rested on their finals group match. However, Sakina Karchaoui, Sandie Toletti, and Kenza Dali all needs to be careful, as they are one yellow card away from suspension. Maelle Lakrar is a doubt in the contest, as she is facing an issue on her thigh.

Morocco is a team who were able to go all the way through the knockout stage, despite having a negative opener. In the opener, they suffered a 6-0 loss against Germany, which made fans doubt them. However, during their remaining matches, Morocco were able to prove that they are a capable and impressive team. Their determination to prove their doubters wrong is one of the reasons why they are still alive in the contest. As first-timers in the World Cup, Morocco indeed exceed all expectations of them. They were able to book their spots in the contest after having a 1-0 win against South Korea and Colombia. Although their opponent is a much-experienced squad, Morocco are firm that this is not the time for them to fear anyone.

Morocco are expected to parade the same lineup coming into this match, as they are hoping to get the same result.
