France take on Morocco at the Qatar 2022 semifinals in a crucial game for their FIFA World Cup aspirations. Find out here why N’Golo Kante is not playing for Les Bleus.
France is one step away from participating in the finals of the FIFA World Cup. Les Bleus must first beat Morocco in the Qatar 2022 semi-finals to book a meeting with Argentina.
Didier Deschamps’ men have ended the ‘curse of the champions’, getting out of the group stage after success at Russia 2018 and their hopes of back-to-back titles remain alive.
Although they are still one of the best teams in the world, this French national team has many different faces when it comes to the 2018 champions. For example, N’Golo Kante is not on the roster and therefore will not play against Morocco.
Why is N’Golo Kante not playing against Morocco
N’Golo Kante is missing France’s semifinal against Morocco because he was ruled out of the 2022 World Cup due to a hamstring injury that required surgery. In October, Chelsea announced Kante would be on the sidelines for four months after going under the knife.
