France's Paul Pogba celebrates after his team advanced to the final

Antoine Griezmann has issued a brilliant response to Thibaut Courtois' salty comments after the Belgium goalkeeper criticised France's tactics in their World Cup semi-final victory on Tuesday.

Pogba has come under criticism following his transfer to Manchester United where his performance at Old Trafford is yet to match his worth.

On Sunday, when France goes for global soccer glory against Croatia in the World Cup final, they will do so almost 20 years to the day from when the country first won a World Cup.

"We don't care how we win, we just want to win, all we care about is getting the second star on this shirt". I came from - I wouldn't exactly say nothing - [but] obviously I had no trophies.

"I think he plays with a freedom in this France team where if he makes a mistake it's accepted", Shearer told BBC Sport.

"I have a love of football in my heart".

'I would have preferred to have lost in the quarter-finals to Brazil, at least that was a team that wanted to play football'.

"But I can improve and get better and better".

He added to laughter: "We have a attractive country, we have a lovely team, we have handsome journalists!"

As a member of the France squad that suffered heartache on home soil in the final of Euro 2016, Pogba knows completing such a historic task is no formality.

"It's not done yet".

France will face surprise package Croatia in the final of the World Cup, which takes place at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday.

The 25-year-old has been in good form for Les Bleus at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, especially in the three knockout fixtures they have played so far, against Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium. But you have to realize a dream.
