Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba hit back at critics after proving France’s matchwinner in Holland last night.
The 23-year-old went into the game on the back of France manager Didier Deschamps publicly highlighting how he “can and must do better” following their 4-1 victory over Bulgaria last Friday.
“I play for the France team. It’s not the Pogba team,” he told Canal+. “We’re not going to start talking individual. I play for the team and I always play for the team.
“It’s not always nice to hear criticism, but that’s football.
“I stay focused on the field. I always give my all. Then, I try to make big benefits and give the best of myself.”
Pogba’s strike cements France’s position at the summit of Group A with seven points from three matches. Sweden are second and Holland are third on four points.
“I am a person who tries things. We always grow and learn. I’m still young. I have goals, we have goals. We want to go to the World Cup.”
