The final semi-final of the World Cup 2022 is between Morocco and France, with the December 14 match deciding which of the two teams will move onto the World Cup final.

While France is a legendary football team, Morocco has been surprising everyone this tournament and has steamrolled through both Spain and Portugal (two close neighbors to each other and Morocco, which might make family gatherings awkward) in the knockout round, to get to this point.

Neither team will get knocked out of the tournament depending on the result of this match, as while the winner will play in the final on December 18, the loser will play in the third-place play-off the day prior.

To see this second World Cup semi-final, we've written this guide to help you work out how to stream the game from around the world.

What you need to know about the match

While the 2022 World Cup has been rife with upsets, none have been as surprising as Morocco's performance in the tournament.

Despite only having progressed past the group stage once before, and not having even qualified for 20 years before the 2018 event, Morocco has smashed its way into the semi-final with a series of unexpected victories.

The team beat Portugal in the quarter-final and Spain in the Round of 16, two teams that (previously) had a very real chance of winning the World Cup. Other than drawing to Croatia in its first match (another team that made its way to the semi-finals), it's won every game it's played.

Still, an inspiring underdog story may not be enough against France, with Mbappé being the World Cup's top goal scorer going into the match. Only time will tell.
