Bacary Sagna makes shock Paul Pogba claim

World Cup warm-up match: Kylian Mbappe earns France draw against USA

Pogba is more talented than any of France’s World Cup winners from 1998 says Desailly

Former Arsenal and France defender Bacary Sagna believes Paul Pogba can shrug off his indifferent form with Manchester United and shine for France at the World Cup.

The Tottenham keeper parried Mario Balotelli's free-kick, allowing Leonardo Bonucci to score, in France's 3-1 win over Italy in Nice and then allowed Julian Green's shot to beat him at his near post in the 1-1 draw with the United States in Lyon.

The midfielder's inconsistent season at Old Trafford has not broken Deschamps' faith, while Olivier Giroud is set to be available on Saturday too despite suffering a head injury.

Olivier Giroud needed six stitches in his head on Saturday night after a truly horrific clash of heads with US defender and Chelsea teammate Matt Miazga.

Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba both had several attempts from long range but were left frustrated by the visitors. "He has had six stitches so obviously as a precaution we need to make sure he doesn't touch the ball with his head for at least the next 48 hours", said Deschamps.

Pogba was named as FIFA's Best Young Player of the 2014 World Cup, and Petit has urged the Manchester United man to build on that success to help Les Bleus emerge victorious in Russian Federation. "But he will be able to face Australia", Deschamps said.

France is considered to be one of the favourites to clinch World Cup silverware, with the likes of Pogba, Ousmane Dembele, Kylian Mbappe, and Antoine Griezmann at their disposal.
