2023 WWC: France End Morocco’s Quarter-finals Hopes After 4-0 Win

Morocco’s run at this year’s FIFA women’s World Cup has ended after a 4-0 loss to France in the round of 16 on Tuesday.

The Atlas Lionesses were the last African team to exit the tournament, after Nigeria and South Africa were eliminated in the round of 16 while Zambia crashed out in the group stage.

But all hopes of continuing their fairy tale run was ended by 2019 World Cup hosts France.

France went into the halftime break 3-0 up thanks to goals from Kadidiatou Diani (15 mins) Kenza Dali (20 mins) and Eugenie Le Sommer (23 mins).

With 20 minutes left Sommer got her second to make it 4-0.

In the first round of 16 game on Tuesday, Colombia edged Jamaica 1-0 to reach the quarter-final for the first time.

    By the time fifa release their next grading super falcon could raise from noba 40th to noba 10th …

    • Aba! I don’t think so. Though we didn’t lose any match, we won just one and drew 3. We should be in the range of 25-30 position.

    What happened to our only HOPE MOROCCO?

    We all THOUGHT they are very GOOD from their MALE to FEMALE TEAMS.

  • The Supper Falcons were the only African side who had the clear chance to make it to quarter finals, when we lost, I knew it was over for Africa

    Morocco’s world cup can be summarized as follows:
    Wotowoto in, wotowoto out.
    Na wotowoto dem take start, na wotowoto dem take commot.
    Herve Renard and his team march on. Can Renard add the world cup trophy to his 2 Afcons? Time will tell!

    • No let Jimmyball or Jaybee read this oh. Lol. Them say falcons were misfits lol.

      RSA scored 6 but conceded 8. Won 1, drew 1, lost 2.

      Morocco scored 2 collected 10. Won 2 lost 2 (badly too)

      Zambia scored 3 conceded 11. Won 1 lost 2 very badly.

      Falcons scored 3 conceded 2. Won 1 lost none out of 4 matches.

      Yet, they say falcons were nitwits.

      Only one year ago, falcons lost to the other African representatives oh in WAFCON but it was hard to see “improvement” for them
