WHERE ARE THEY Now? The 1998 World Cup Winning France Team

14 July 2018

Pogba, 25, was instrumental in the semi-final win in St Petersburg, as Samuel Umtiti's goal in the 51st minute put the 1998 champions in the World Cup final against the victor of Croatia and England.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was critical of Pogba's lack of consistency in the middle of the park last season to fuel talk of the club record signing quitting Old Trafford. "I want a second star to be on this shirt, and if I have the star, I do not care about the game we have done". "I came from - I wouldn't exactly say nothing - [but] obviously I had no trophies".

He said: 'Does Thibaut Courtois think he plays Barcelona football at Chelsea? It was my love, my first love.

"I would have preferred to have lost in the quarter-finals to Brazil, at least that was a team that wanted to play football".

"I get criticised again and again but everything is fine". We are winning. It's always nice to win and it is nice to hear nice things about the team, about yourself and everything.

Pogba continued: "I know that sometimes you are doing good, sometimes you are doing bad, but that's how you grow".
