    Pogba urges France to avenge Euros defeat in World Cup final

    Paul Pogba has urged France not to let an opportunity to win the World Cup pass as Les Bleus booked their place in Sunday's showpiece with a 1-0 win over Belgium . Pogba, 25, was instrumental in the semi-final win in St Petersburg, as Samuel Umtiti's goal in the 51st minute put the 1998 champions in the World Cup final against the winner of Croatia and England. The Manchester United midfielder was part of the France squad that lost 1-0 in extra time to Portugal in the Euro 2016 final, and Pogba hopes they can now go one better on Sunday. "It's beautiful, it's good, but there's still a step," he told L'Equipe . "Today I'm happy but it's not like the Euros. We had the chance to win the final of the Euros, but we missed a wonderful thing and we must not let this chance pass. "You have to focus. We savour [the win] a little, but we must now focus on the final. We were there [in 2016], we were close to winning the title and we missed. "It makes me happy that people are happy, but I hope to make them even happier on the evening of the 15th of July." Pogba later took to social media to dedicate France's win over Belgium to the football team that was rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand . This victory goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong

    Pogba was almost everywhere - Deschamps singles out midfielder after semi-final win

    Didier Deschamps was full of praise for Paul Pogba after the midfielder played a starring role in France's World Cup semi-final win over Belgium. Samuel Umtiti scored the only goal of the game in the 51st minute as Les Bleus reached a third final, where they will play either Croatia or England on Sunday. Pogba was not involved in the winner but worked tirelessly for the team's cause in St Petersburg, creating three chances in attack while also making four tackles. "All players need to be mentioned but it's true that Pogba was almost everywhere, not only in attack but he was also efficient in defence," Deschamps told the media.  "I think [Belgium coach Roberto] Martinez had decided to put [Marouane] Fellaini on him so Fellaini was only worried about Pogba, so of course he had less freedom on the ball. "But he knew what to do, he left very little waste. He was more creative in terms of recovery of the ball, one-on-ones, he performed very well. "Paul has grown in the team, he is a very expressive player. He knows what he has to do and what he does on the pitch can only increase his legitimacy in the group." France last won the World Cup in 1998, with captain Deschamps lifting the trophy in Paris after a resounding 3-0 triumph over Brazil in a one-sided final. He refused to be drawn on comparisons between the successful squad of 20 years ago and the current crop, instead focusing on his desire to write a "new page" in the country's footballing history. "They have to live in their own time - never, ever mention your own history [in 1998]," he said. "The players know it. Some of them were not born but they saw pictures. It belongs to other French people who lived through it, but not the younger generation. "I can't make comparisons, talk to them about players from 20 years ago, even 10 years ago. I'm here with them today to write a new page in history, the most beautiful page. "I'm not saying I'm not proud of what we did 20 years ago - no-one can erase that - but one must live in their times. I cannot look and see what is in the rear-view mirror. That is not how you look forward. "One day I will stop and think about it, but that time has not come yet."

    Mbappe: I don't care about Ballon d'Or, I want the World Cup

    Kylian Mbappe says he wants to win the World Cup and is not interested in individual awards such as the Ballon d'Or. Mbappe starred as France beat Belgium 1-0 in Tuesday's World Cup semi-final, booking a spot against either England or Croatia, creating a great chance for Olivier Giroud with a wonderful backheel pass. France have not won the tournament since 1998 when they triumphed on home soil, with Mbappe tipped as a possible Golden Ball winner due to his fine performances. The 19-year-old has also been suggested as a contender for the Ballon d'Or, having become the first teenager since Pele to score more than once in a World Cup game. Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe, though, has his full focus on Russia 2018 as France look to go one step further than their loss in the final of Euro 2016 against Portugal. "It's unimaginable. It is the dream of a life, of a future life, of everything. I do not have the words," Mbappe said to TF1.  "Even in my biggest dreams I had not imagined that, and yet I am a big dreamer. But it remains a step. "When you do not cheat and work for the collective, you are rewarded. As long as I can help the team, it's all that matters to me. "I do not care about the Ballon d'Or, I want the World Cup."
