Paul Pogba says France want more after winning the UEFA Nations League.

Pogba played all 90 minutes as France beat Spain 2-1 in the final, after a 3-2 semi-final win over Belgium.

Spain had taken a lead before France fought back with goals from Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe to win it.

Speaking after the game to Footmercato, Pogba acknowledged France were not at their best, but was happy to lift a trophy.

RONALDO NEEDS TO STOP WHINING.

Pogba said: “It’s true that we started badly in the first half, where we were dominated by Spain. We had to react after the goal, we had to score quickly after

“We have to do better, we know that. The result is victory. If that’s how we have to win … why not! 

“We will continue like this. Of course, this victory is important, it’s always good to go for trophies. We are never satisfied, we are always thirsty.”

Back to their best

This is Pogba’s second international trophy with France after the 2018 World Cup.

France fell short at Euro 2020 and that failure seems to have made them hungrier.

Les Bleus are on track to qualify for the 2022 World Cup and they will be among the favourites to win.

Pogba’s teammate Raphael Varane was substituted early with an injury in the win and there is currently no update on how long he will be out for.

Anthony Martial was an unused substitute for France.
