Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho hails 'mature' Paul Pogba

Share

Paul Pogba has urged France not to let an opportunity to win the World Cup pass as Les Bleus booked their place in Sunday's showpiece with a 1-0 win over Belgium.

The 6ft 3in colossus is yet to open his goal-scoring account at the World Cup this summer, but manager Didier Deschamps likes him due to his hold-up play.

'When (France boss) Deschamps took off (Olivier) Giroud to bring on (Steven) Nzonzi then Pogba had more freedom but freedom not to do silly things.

"FIFA's priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation and we will look into finding a new opportunity to invite the boys to a Federation Internationale de Football Association event to share with them a moment of communion and celebration", a spokesman said.

Pogba and France will now wait to see who they will face in Sunday's World Cup final in Moscow, with England and Croatia set to do battle in the second semi-final on Wednesday evening. "I'm very happy for my players, we showed character and the right mentality, it was very hard for us tonight".

"We didn't win the Euros final, so that's why it's close to my heart now to reach this level at the World Cup", he said.

"In honour of our England getting to the semi-final, we've made a decision to decorate one of our buses to show our support".

All we can say is that for two of these four sides that answer will come sooner rather than later, as today (*producer jump zoom*): one of these nations is going home. I'm very proud of them.

Finally, Antoine Griezmann told TF1 of the luck that Adil Rami's moustache has brought France in Russian Federation and his desire to bring the World Cup back to France.

"I am amazed about what happened in Thailand".

Deschamps also recalled France's defeat to Portugal in the Euro 2016 final in Paris two years ago, and revealed it's still weighing on the team.
