Deschamps, Griezmann Defend Paul Pogba After France Jeering

Zidane Deschamps

While a bulk of the jeers appeared to be directed at Pogba, Deschamps claimed the home fans were not singling out the £89m midfielder during the 3-1 win against Italy in Nice.

Samuel Umtiti, Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele all scored to seal victory at the Allianz Riviera Stadium.

Corentin Tolisso is upset by whistles aimed at Paul Pogba in the win over Italy.

In addition to Pogba, Thorian Flauvin was also the target of French supporter heckling. "It's not just for him, at one point we kept the ball and they whistled too", he told TF1.

The Manchester United midfielder, 25, was not the on the scoresheet, as he struggled to find his form, and was ultimately substituted in the second half in favour of Steven N'Zonzi. Everyone represents the French team, ' Tolisso said.

The Frenchman has enjoyed a mixed campaign, suffering injury spells and demotions to the bench alongside producing spellbinding displays in big games against Man City, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

It's hard to know exactly how to view the career of Paul Pogba so far.

"We must admire the player we have". Thauvin was a key player in the Marseille team that reached the final of the Europa League last season, and a priority candidate for Atletico should Griezmann decide to leave the club in the coming days.

It's looking ever more likely that Griezmann will be staying in the Spanish capital, but the door could be opened once again for Manchester United. It hurts because I wouldn't want to be whistled, even if I went to Saint-Etienne as an ex-Lyon player. We're all on the same boat, and we have to all stick together'.

France have one more warm-up match before the showpiece in Russian Federation, against the United States on June 9.
