France Ends England’s Hope Of Bringing The World Cup Home

Reigning champions, France have ended England’s hope of winning the 2022 World Cup after defeating the Three Lions 2-1 in the quarter finals on Saturday.

The match between two European powerhouses was billed to be the tie of the quarter-finals and it did not disappoint.

France took the lead in controversial fashion in the 17th minute.

Harry Kane equalised the score after the break with a penalty kick. Olivier Giroud then scored a late goal to put France back in control.

Harry Kane missed a second penalty kick,  booting the ball well over the bar.

France will face Morocco in Wednesday’s second semifinal. The winner of that will meet the Croatia-Argentina winner in the World Cup final on Dec. 18.
