Despite his positive displays, Pogba often comes under scrutiny for what he does on and off the field, but the Red Devils star has insisted he will keep trying his best. I came from - I wouldn't exactly say nothing - [but] obviously I had no trophies. I could do one thing and it was to play football.

"We are winning. It's always nice to win and to hear good things about the team, about yourself and everything". I know that sometimes you are doing good, sometimes you are doing bad, but that's how you grow.

"We would like to host them and share with them the happiness of football, hoping that this can go some way to helping them after everything they've been through in the last few weeks".

But Pogba has enjoyed an impressive World Cup for France and excelled against Belgium in Tuesday's 1-0 semi-final win, a performance that earned him high praise from his coach Didier Deschamps and compatriot Arsene Wenger, the former Arsenal manager.

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