Speaking to BeIN Sports following becoming a World Cup winner, Paul Pogba evoked his father.
“I think about 1998, when I watched a cassette tape of the World Cup with my father, at home, on repeat, we would watch it the entire time, the entire time. Now today I am a world champion. I miss my father. He is watching us. I think he would be very proud, this is for him.”
“I spoke to the team before the match, I said to them make me win it, make me dream, make me achieve my dream. I want to thank everyone, right to the kit-man, we did everything together. The work has paid off. We are so proud to represent our country.”
