On a more petty level, majority of the French players look more like me, that's any more than I can say for our North African brothers

There must be a perceived benefit for supporting France, right? I personally don't see any benefit in supporting France over Morocco. Morocco and Cameroon's heroic performances in 86 and 90' World Cups resulted to FIFA increasing Africa's slots; and smoothed the path for Nigeria to play with the big boys on the world stage. Long term thinking is your best short term strategy. Why should I favor supporting bunch of black kids (aka Saka, Mbappe, etc) representing European countries to win the World Cup when I know that seeing an African country in the final (or possibly winning) will inspire next generation of African kids and very likely inspire next generation of foreign born African players to represent motherland (aka Moroccan foreign born players)?

let's address this, who would inspire African kids / the next generation . The likes of Kante or the likes of Rabah Madja.. Now be honest with yourself, which of these players do you think an African would look up to

My heart is with Morocco but my head wants France to win, just to reduce the chances of Messi and Argentina winning it all. I don't think Morocco will be able to challenge Messi and Argentina in a possible grand finale. So, .... allez les Bleus (can't believe I actually said that) :oops: :oops: :oops:

No mind am.

Do many here not actively root against England who even parade Nigerian players.

Africa all day long.

Those black players are winning plaudits for Europeans.

The historical significance of what Morocco can achieve FAR outweighs rooting for somebody that "looks like me"

And you think Morocco will not be able to take out Argentina if they had taken out France Portugal, Spain, Belgium.

Argentina is not the best team at this WC.

Morocco has already beaten better.

I was supporting both teams. But will now support France. Argentina will make a joke out of Morocco.
