Pogba dedicates France victory to Thai cave survivors

Pogba dedicates France victory to Thai cave survivors”

Deschamps is aiming to join Germany's Franz Beckenbauer and Brazil's Mario Zagallo as the only men to have won the World Cup as both a player and a manager.

That means they will not be accepting Fifa's invitation to Sunday's World Cup final in Russian Federation.

France beat Croatia in the semi-final en route to becoming champions 20 years ago, but Pogba is conscious he and his team-mates are yet to earn their own status as world beaters.

Center back Samuel Umtiti put France on the board in the 51st minute with a header off of a corner, and the team managed to hold that narrow lead for the last 40 minutes and change.

Croatia having endured gruelling periods of extra time in each of their knockout matches, but Pogba does not subscribe to the theory that fatigue will make France's opposition underdogs.

"We have four days to share this happiness with our families and we will come back tomorrow calmly and see who is going to face us".

"A huge match between two of the teams that have produced some of the best football at this tournament", he added.

He is not a figure popular with Tottenham fans given his connection in London and a selection of them chose to give him stick on Twitter after his latest performance in a France kit.

England's dream that "it's coming home" continues, with Dele Alli scoring a second-half victor.

"For us, we are not the favourites".

The victor will play the victor of England-Croatia in the World Cup Final this weekend. We have no doubts, we play together, that's our strength.

"Even when things don't exactly go Les Bleus' way, these young hardworking players get impressive results", Marcus said in Tuesday's edition of "The Banter." I don't think there is a plan just for Modric. "There will be one for everyone".
