John Giles: 'If Pogba has seen the light, France will win'

Monday, 16 Jul, 2018

France earned its slot in the finals after defeating Belgium 1-0 courtesy of Samuel Umtiti header in a match played on Tuesday. I do not want to relive that.

Jurgen Klinsmann believes Manchester United star Paul Pogba deserves all the praise he's received following his win with France in the World Cup final. Croatia have never played a World Cup final and know they are on the brink of creating history and becoming legends in Croatia. Croatia needed spot kicks to advance against Denmark in the last 16 and against Russian Federation in the quarter-finals.

He becomes just the third United player to win the World Cup while at the club and the first since 1966, when their other two winners, Sir Bobby Charlton and Nobby Stiles, were winners with England.

The Frenchman is one of the best footballers in the world and we fought really hard to bring him back from Juventus and it would make little sense to sell him now.

"On behalf of the whole LFC family we wish you from the bottom of our hearts all the best", Klopp told CNN Sport.

'We are all happy to be staying in Moscow, that was our goal.

The duo had several bust-ups in United's trophies season but fortunately for Didier Deschamps, Pogba has found form at the deal time.

When all is said and done, we will see France win their second title or possibly Croatia win its first ever in what's been a World Cup full of surprises.

Canadians of Croatian descent are eagerly anticipating the World Cup final that will see Croatia go up against France, saying the game will mark a moment of huge pride for fans of the team.

"But I do not have a star. I wouldn't say that I'm young but I'm not old, yet, and we are going through nice things and want to finish it".

Zlatko Dalic has some genuinely world-class talent at his disposal in Mario Mandzukic, Ivan Rakitic, and captain Luka Modric - though the Real Madrid midfielder did look noticeably jaded at the end of the semi-final victory.

He said: "Back home in Split, I remember I used to dream of playing for Croatia and to score".
