Pogba’s speech before France’s WC match against Argentina

Paul Pogba delivered an inspired speech before France’s World Cuplast-16 win over Argentina, telling his team-mates “today we kill them, Messi or no Messi”.

France claimed their second world title thanks to Sunday’s 4-2 victory against Croatia in Moscow and Pogba’s influence on the dressing room has been telling amid the celebrations, reports Hindustan Times.

Pogba made a number of speeches enroute to the decider and footage of his comments prior to France’s thrilling 4-3 triumph at the expense of Lionel Messi’s Argentina in Kazan has emerged.

“I want to see warriors on the field guys,” Pogba told his team-mates in a scene from a documentary aired by TF1. “I don’t want to go home!

“We will finish happy! I want to party tonight. I want to be dead on the field, all together! I want men, warriors, soldiers.

“Today we will ‘kill’ them. Messi or no Messi I don’t care!”

Manchester United midfielder Pogba was at it again before France defeated 10-man Uruguay 2-0 in Nizhny Novgorod for a place in the World Cup semi-finals.

“That’s it, there is no turning back anymore,” said Pogba. “That’s it! We’re going to continue, we’re gonna go all the way! See you on July 15th - all together!”
