Morocco's surprising victory over Colombia propelled them to the Round of 16, setting up an intriguing showdown against France and eliminating the two-time world champions Germany.

This match is highly anticipated as Morocco defied expectations, becoming the first-ever Women's World Cup debutantes to advance past the group stage.

While France's Women's World Cup campaign is already deemed a success, Morocco, despite being underdogs, poses a challenge as they look to continue their historic run.

Team news for France includes the potential return of center-back Wendie Renard, who was rested for precautionary reasons, and possible concerns over the availability of Grace Geyoro and Maelle Lakrar.

Yellow card accumulation is a concern for both teams, with four French players, Moroccan captain Ghizlane Chebbak and defender Nouhaila Benzina at risk of suspension.

Despite their narrow victories, the Moroccan squad is in good health heading into the Round of 16 clash.

The match promises an exciting contest between two teams aiming to progress further in the tournament.
