Mourinho singled out Pogba and Varane for praises

There was a definite case of sour grapes for Belgium following their semi-final exit to France in the World Cup.

Hazard was another Belgian who was not especially gracious in defeat, saying after the game that he would prefer to lose with his Belgian side than win playing how France did.

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

The Les Blues have progressed to the final of the tournament and are set to meet the victor of the other semi between England and Croatia on Sunday.

"They can criticise me, but they cannot criticise what I do on the pitch", Pogba said, according to the Daily Star.

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

During the daylong meeting, Strzok sparred with Republicans, who lashed out at him in often sharply personal exchanges. Goodlatte eventually let the hearing proceed without calling the panel into recess.

"We'll approach it differently and hope that we play really well and win it". We are winning. It's always nice to win and it is nice to hear nice things about the team, about yourself and everything.

"I get criticised again and again but everything is fine". I know that sometimes you are doing good, sometimes you are doing bad, but that's how you grow.

"I was top scorer but we lost, so I said to myself: "I am going to score less to see if we can win".

The semi-final was one game", he added, with Les Bleus to face Croatia in Sunday's final after Mario Mandzukic's extra-time goal secured a 2-1 victory over England on Wednesday.

"It's up to us to put everything into place to achieve our dream of lifting the World Cup".
