France, on the other hand, saw off Morocco in an intense, back-and-forth showdown at the Al Bayt Stadium, beating the North African country 2-0.
Theo Hernandez opened the scoring, slotting home in the fifth minute, with Raphael Varane receiving fan plaudits for his 'line-breaking pass' in the build-up to the goal.
Second-half substitute Randal Kolo Muani made it 2-0 when he scored from close range after Kylian Mbappe's deflected shot fell into his path.
Morocco, who dumped Spain and Portugal out of the tournament, fought with the same intensity in their previous outings but failed to break down the defending champions.
