Kylian Mbappe and Achraf Hakimi had the most wholesome shirt swap after France beat Morocco in the Semi Finals

After his France team defeated Morocco in the World Cup semifinal, Kylian Mbappe made a sportsmanship gesture toward Achraf Hakimi.

Theo Hernandez and Randal Kolo Muani scored goals for Les Bleus to defeat the Atlas Lions 2-0 on Wednesday.

Morocco’s players, including Hakimi, were devastated when their side was eliminated, but the defender’s PSG teammate comforted him by switching shirts and hugging him on the field after the game.

Before running over to his teammates and joining them in the celebratory sprint toward the French fans, the star forward put on the game-used jersey.
Before French President Emmanuel Macron addressed the two in the tunnel, Mbappe sat close to Hakimi against the wall. One of the key moments of the game was the struggle between the two players, with the right-back attempting to stop the left-sided forward.

When the two squared off in Qatar, Mbappe had stated in January that he would have to “crush” his clubmate.

With five goals, the former Monaco forward is tied for first place with Lionel Messi of Argentina in the World Cup Golden Boot contest.

Now, Les Bleus will meet Messi’s Argentina in the championship game on Sunday in an effort to defend their world title.
