Paul Pogba can shine at World Cup

Paul Pogba can shine at World Cup

"He has been playing big games with Juventus, Manchester United and the national team so, yeah, he can deal easily with it".

He missed out on glory at Euro 2016 on home soil after losing in the final to Portugal, though France will hope to go one better in Russian Federation.

Didier Deschamps' side dominated but fell behind to Julian Green's smart finish past Tottenham's Hugo Lloris.

They then take on Peru and Denmark.

Idaho Child Diagnosed With Plague; Only 5th Human Case In State’s History
That would only happen through close proximity to someone suffering from the variation of the disease known as pneumonic plague. Prior to this case, the last two cases reported in Idaho occurred in 1991 and 1992, with both patients fully recovering.

John Boyega Slams 'Star Wars' Fans Who Harass the Actors & Actresses
But for now, fans can at least start theorizing with this little peek into the Star Wars that could have been. We've heard bits and pieces of the Star Wars trilogy Lucas wanted to make over the years.

With Laurent Koscielny out through injury, France need a leader at the heart of their defence, and that is where Varane comes in. What a midfielder he is.

Therefore, dropping Pogba encourages Deschamps to use a 4-2-3-1 formation, one more suited to counter-attacking football, a style of play that better fits France's personnel.

The 25-year-old's recent form has encapsulated his last two seasons with Manchester United but French fans will be hoping that his quality eventually shines through as they know that he is more than capable of producing something special on his day. Was France's best player in Euro 2016, and while there is a bit of a shadow hanging around his club future - Barcelona are really interested in signing the forward from Atletico Madrid - Griezmann has enough experience now to put that to back burner. This is because of the threatening prospect of Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele on the flanks, offering speed, trickery and a potent goal threat. It is insane that a 19-year-old is already one of France's main players. He could use Pogba as an impact substitute.
