When you think about it, the World Cup Semi Final is just a rematch of the Battle of Tours

732 AD: A bunch of North Africans, having already conquered the Iberian Peninsula, prepare do combat with the French

On that occasion it ended poorly for the Moors, when Charles Martel scored a hat-trick in the 2nd Half after Al-Ghafiqi forgot to mark him.

2022: A bunch of North Africans, having already conquered the Iberian Peninsula, prepare to do combat with the French

So if my understanding of history is correct, the Moroccans are going to get slaughtered on Wednesday evening in a recreation of Tours, but they will hold the Iberian Peninsula for another 780 years.

Actually, the thought of Achraf Hakimi putting Panenkas past every goalkeeper in La Liga and doing a penguin dance every time?

Count me in!
