Jose Mourinho praises 'mature' Paul Pogba after France win

Jose Mourinho praises 'mature' Paul Pogba after France win

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud helped France reach the World Cup final after a win over Belgium on Tuesday night, and Tottenham Hotspur fans could not help but heavily criticise him for his performance. "Everyone is with us, we're all in this together".

Deschamps, who led the nation to victory at France '98, is bidding to become just the third man after Mario Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer to win the World Cup as both player and coach, but is refusing to look back to his own triumph as a player in 1998.

Asked what Macron said, Mbappe replied: "President Macron said that he would see us in the semifinals, and that he was going to come back to see us with the World Cup".

"It was exceptional", Deschamps said in a pitchside interview.

"In honour of our England getting to the semi-final, we've made a decision to decorate one of our buses to show our support".

"I am here with them today to write a new page in history, the most attractive page".

"It is an unforgettable moment - I remember Zizou at the Arc de Triomphe, and I hope that we will have our chance". "It was hard to take two years ago, and we do not want a repeat of that".

"We didn't win the Euros final, so that's why it's close to my heart now to reach this level at the World Cup", he said.

"We had to take advantage a bit more in the counter-attacks, but congratulations to my players and my staff". England has been craving a top title since it won the World Cup in 1966 and has a tremendous, unforseen opportunity ahead, with the weight of its country on its shoulders.

"We wanted to reach this final, and now we have made it", he told TF1.
