The midfielder was instrumental in his nation's run to winning worldwide football's most prestigious trophy so there's no surprise he was vocal either.

The match marked a turning point for France following a stuttering qualification from Group C and a video has emerged of Pogba's rousing team talk before the win.

The Frenchman played one of the best games of his life in Sunday's final, scoring France's third goal in their unbelievable 4-2 victory over a valiant Croatian side.

"And now we're going to fight for our partners, like we did before!"

The midfielder was in fine form for his country as he helped Les Bleus to win the World Cup for the first time since their triumph on home soil back in 1998. Argentina and maybe even more! "We have to beat the best to be the best!"
