Qatar 2022 They’re scrambling everywhere – Danny Murphy slams Morocco as France qualify for final. Former Liverpool player Danny Murphy criticized Morocco for their “disastrous start” to their 2-0 loss to France in the 2022 FIFA World Cup semifinal on Wednesday.
Theo Hernandez completed a quick move following a flurry for the ball inside the Moroccan area to give France the perfect start.
After many unsuccessful efforts to stop an amazing through-ball to Antoine Griezmann, Morocco left themselves vulnerable and the match’s opening goal was scored by Hernandez after five minutes.
Murphy was harshly critical of Morocco’s goal defense while delivering live commentary for BBC’s coverage of the semifinal game.
He said that the Atlas Lions were scurrying all over the place and criticized them for their ‘too enthusiastic’ start against the World Cup champs.
“Isn’t that a slip, then? When discussing the goal, Murphy remarked, “From [Jawad] El Yamiq, it is foolish defense and then they are scrambling all over the place.
It is a good finishing approach and it falls for Hernandez, who takes his time. anticipating its fall.
“France’s start was fantastic, whereas Morocco’s opening was terrible. Not a bad defense; quite unlike them.
“Trying to take the lead too soon against France’s caliber. The error resulted from being overeager and eager to try to take the lead. No issue, simply follow him, particularly with Griezmann around. It’s a strong pass.
“France will be content to sit back now; that was the last thing they wanted to do. It’s excellent work by Hernandez.
Argentina will now take against France in the FIFA World Cup championship match on Sunday.
