La Liga stars power France to 2022 World Cup spot

France have secured their place in the 2022 World Cup semi finals with a 2-1 win over England.

The defending champions faced a major test against Gareth Southgate’s side in Al Khor as Didier Deschamps’ charges eventually secured their spot in the last four.

Les Bleus impressed in the opening stages at the Al Bayt Stadium, as Real Madrid star Aurelien Tchouameni fired them in front after 17 minutes.

England rallied after the restart, as Harry Kane fired home from the penalty spot, before Olivier Giroud superbly converted Antoine Griezmann’s cross to put France back in front.

However, England’s moment of redemption was missed in the final stages, as Kane blazed over from the penalty spot, and France marched on into the semi final.

France will now face Morocco in the semi final on December 14, ahead of a potential final date, up against either Argentina or Croatia in Lusail, on December 18.
