Indeed, Pogba was arguably the catalyst in France’s solitary goal. His sublime, chipped pass to Lucas Hernandez enabled the full-back to power in the cross which forced Hummels to fire into his own net.

 

And in the second period, as the world champions searched for a second, Pogba was so nearly the instigator of a goal for Karim Benzema.

 

Controlling the ball in midfield, the tall midfielder swept an immaculate through ball to Kylian Mbappe, who squared for the veteran Real Madrid striker to tap into an empty net.

 

The celebrations began, only for VAR to rule Mbappe offside in the build-up. Nevertheless, France still won to get their Euros bid up and running.
