I say it again. They have been so consistent, especially in the knockout phase. A golden duo, they complete each others in every possible way. And they’re still in their mid 20s! France can be proud.— Seleção Brasileira (@BrazilStat) July 10, 2018 The media probably won’t mention it, but Paul Pogba has genuinely been exceptional all tournament. He’s completely put the ‘he’s too flashy’ and ‘he can’t handle defensive responsibility’ debates to bed. Was class again tonight, both in possession and without it. Mature display.— Patrick Timmons (@PatrickTimmons1) July 10, 2018 Paul Pogba casually dropped a world class performace in a World Cup semi-final and bossed 65% of the pitch.My midfielder ❤️ pic.twitter.com/48XewpCO7r— Man Utd Channel (@ManUtdChannel) July 10, 2018 Rio Ferdinand on Pogba: “We all know how good he is on the ball. His work rate and defensive discipline, I loved his intensity, he knew his job and his intensity was top drawer. I love him as a a player.” #mufc [BBC]— United Xtra (@utdxtra) July 10, 2018 Paul Pogba has been absolutely incredible this game.— Tom Coast (@thcoast) July 10, 2018 1center_img Pogba’s been utterly fantastic.— EiF (@EiFSoccer) July 10, 2018 One of Pogba’s best games ever, the Man of the Match for me.
