Morocco vs Portugal, England vs France


After an eventful first day of quarter-finals with two penalties, we head into day two as Morocco take on Portugal and England take on France.

Morocco were the surprise of the tournament; Will his magical run continue? Can England outplay France’s talented front line and make it to the semis?

We would start this game with Cristiano Ronaldo in a regular draw. But Gonçalo Ramos unleashed the potential of this Portuguese side when he came on as a striker in place of Ronaldo and scored a hat-trick. Portugal were so good in that game against Switzerland that Ramos has to start all over again, although we don’t expect another six goals from this game. Morocco were absolutely phenomenal defensively. The only goal allowed is an own goal.

This has the potential to become a 0-0 snoozer with both teams unable and unwilling to unlock each other or it could become the game of the tournament. Is there anything in between? We’re curious if England add a fifth defender to deal with Olivier Giroud’s holdup play and Kylian Mbappe’s speed, or stick with the system they’ve played so far this tournament. The fear in both nations if this game goes to penalties would be felt even in the United States.
