Qatar 2022: France Won’t Underestimate Morroco – Varane

Must read

France defender Raphael Varane has insisted that there will be no complacency from the World Cup holders when they take on surprise package Morocco in the semi-finals on Wednesday.

Having edged out England in the last eight, Les Bleus are strong favourites to return to the final even though Morocco have already eliminated Spain and Portugal in the knockout phase in Qatar.
“We have enough experience in the team to not fall into that trap,” said Varane, one of the survivors of France’s victorious 2018 World Cup campaign, when asked about the danger of over-confidence.“We know Morocco are not here by chance. It is up to us experienced players to make sure everyone is prepared for another battle.”READ ALSO:World Cup Referee Sent Home After Being Slammed By Lionel Messi And Argentina

Fance have reached the target set by the country’s football federation of getting to the last four but Manchester United defender Varane said the team were hungry for a place in Sunday’s final against Argentina or Croatia.

“It is not easy to get to a World Cup semi-final so we are very pleased, but the only real objective is to win it,” he said. “That was always the aim.”
