Jose Mourinho: Paul Pogba should not be given France’s victor against Australia

May JohnsonJun 19, 2018

"I'm going away with 23 of my brothers, so we all get on well".

France will get their campaign underway on Saturday when they face Group C rivals Australia.

"I'm not allowed to go to the screen".

However, the France coach is adamant that the inexperience of the squad is not responsible for their faults, despite having an average age of just 24 years and 6 months, the youngest of any World Cup squad. I think we've let Australia slow down the game.

Griezmann was also full of praise for VAR, which played it's part in the match against Australia, as the penalty which he won for his team was given by the video referee.

A penalty was awarded and Mile Jedinak fired home with aplomb to draw Australia level before Paul Pogba scored a late victor to spare Umtiti's blushes.

Although we ended up with 3 goals, there were frequent breaks in play.

In defence, Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard, both 22, are likely to start on the flanks after impressive displays in the warm-up games, in the absence of the injured Djibril Sidibe. "We at least deserved a draw", Van Marwijk added.

The phone comes with BlackBerry's iconic QWERTY keyboard and is the successor to the BlackBerry KEYone which was launched in 2017. There's a fingerprint sensor inside the home button; the whole thing acts as a touch-sensitive trackpad and it feels very clicky.

The Socceroos looked transformed from the team that laboured through a long qualifying campaign and two playoffs just to get to Russian Federation as they competed manfully with one of the pre-tournament favourites at the Kazan Arena.

"There is a bitterness of not being able to give the team all three points because I think we deserved it", the Barcelona icon said.

Pogba's best position for Manchester United was often debated during an inconsistent Premier League season for the 25-year-old, but speaking to Russia Today his club boss Mourinho applauded his role as a "box-to-box" midfielder in the goal, which sealed a 2-1 win for France.

"That is great news for his club and for France, too", said Deschamps.

French coach Didier Deschamps praised Australia's tactical organisation and the way it disrupted his highly regarded team, but also bemoaned France's lack of urgency.

They worked hard in their pre-tournament camp in Turkey to build fitness and structure, and maximise their hopes of emerging from a tough group featuring 11th-ranked Peru and 12th-ranked Denmark.

"First, we have to win the first group game".
