France midfielder, Paul Pogba has revealed how he inspired his team-mates, before their 4-2 win over Croatia, in the final of the 2018 World Cup on Sunday.
Pogba became the first Manchester United player to score in a World Cup Final, curling in a sublime left-foot effort that gave Les Bleus a 3-1 lead.
According to him, he was not ready to let the chance to fulfill a childhood dream, slip by.
“It is a dream since I was a young boy. I hope we have made the people proud.
“I told everyone before the game, ‘We are 90 minutes away from realising our dream, we are 90 minutes from entering into history books for life, and we were 90 minutes away from making France rock — even children, and their children, will know about this.
“So guys, we can do this. There are two teams and a Cup and we are not going to let another team take this Cup.’
“That is all I told them,” Pogba said after the game.
