Morocco have already put in the most successful performance of any African nation in history at the 2022 World Cup, but will be keen to make one last push and raise the bar even higher. They were unlucky to come out goalless in the France v Morocco clash, and proved that they have the mettle to compete on football's grandest stage.

Croatia fought hard in the Argentina v Croatia semi-final, but were no match for an Argentina side that had one eye already on the final. Their star man, Luka Modric, is likely playing his last minutes of World Cup action, and will be looking for one last win to go out on a high.

After their performance against France though, I struggle to look beyond Morocco in this game. They're just so good on the ball, and they create some really fantastic chances. Croatia can run the game from midfield, but often lack that last bit of firepower to win matches in regular time. If it goes all the way to penalties, I'd make a flask and sit back – we could be in for a long night.
