Paul Pogba cheeky dig made by Fabio Capello

Man Utd transfer news Paul Pogba has had numerous bust-ups with Jose Mourinho

Paul Pogba scored France's victor against Australia with a deflected shot in the 80th minute after Antoine Griezmann (France) and Mile Jedinak (Australia) had traded penalties.

"Pogba is controversial, the media always talks about him and I think this is out of jealousy", Ibrahimovic told BeIN Sports.

The goal was originally credited to Paul Pogba but Federation Internationale de Football Association have since confirmed that while Pogba did get a touch, it wasn't going towards goal until it took a deflection off Behich.

France's World Cup campaign continues on Thursday when they face Peru.

Paul Pogba believes he is the most criticised player in the world right now.


Pogba's feelings were echoed by his former teammate, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

'When I was little with my friends, we always used to take the p*** out of each other, saying "you were good, you were bad".

"I think he wanted the win so much, he fought to win".

Ibrahimovic had previously identified Pogba and Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappé as the two players who would have the biggest impact on the tournament this summer. "Mbappé, an up-and-coming star who still has more to give to get to the top, but he will for sure arrive there".

When he scored a sensational freekick goal against Russian Federation last March - on what would have been his father's 80th birthday - Pogba lifted his French No 6 jersey to reveal a white T-shirt carrying the message: "Happy birthday Papa".
