The fact that Morocco has made it to the last 16 of the Women’s World Cup is a dream come true for the team, who are making their debut in the tournament. The upcoming match against France, who are considered strong contenders, is a particularly significant event for their coach.

Reynald Pedros, a 51-year-old former France international midfielder, played alongside Zinedine Zidane in the team that made it to the semi-finals at Euro 96.

“I know this France team perfectly, which is an advantage,” Pedros expressed his surprise after Morocco secured a spot in the next stage of the major tournament, eliminating former champions Germany in the process.

Captain Renard, Le Sommer, Bacha, and Majri, along with goalkeeper Pauline Peyraud-Magnin and midfielder Kenza Dali, were among the six members of the France squad who previously played under Pedros at Lyon during their time in Australia.

Morocco has made history at the Women’s World Cup by achieving victories against South Korea and Colombia. This comes after a disappointing 6-0 loss to Germany in their opening game. It’s worth noting that no Arab team had previously won a match at the Women’s World Cup.

It would be a remarkable accomplishment for the Moroccan men’s team, currently ranked 72nd in the world, to defeat France. Interestingly, France’s coach, Herve Renard, previously led the Moroccan team for three years from 2016 to 2019.r three years from 2016 to 2019.

Pedros stated that they will attempt to create some difficulties for their opponents. The World Cup has been an amazing event, filled with unexpected outcomes. This is what makes sports at the highest level so fascinating – you can never predict what will occur.
