Former Chelsea star Didier Drogba has lauded Paul Pogba following his display for France against Argentina in the Round of 16 stage of the World Cup.
The European nation managed to win 4-3 in one of the matches of the tournament and it’s no surprises that it was Manchester United star who proved to be one of the best on the field that day.
Pogba’s performance drew the praise of many as he played a crucial part in his team’s win that will see them face Uruguay in the quarter finals next.
France’s bid for international glory appears to be a difficult one but if the former Juventus man is in form, they may just have a chance.
Drogba was impressed with how Paul played but was even more impressed with the characteristics he showed during the clash of the giants.
Didier Drogba: "Paul Pogba carried the team as a leader. He was incredible for France today." 👏 #WorldCup

There have been shouts from some United fans for the talented midfielder to become the club’s next captain following Michael Carrick‘s retirement.
After all, it was Jose Mourinho‘s plan to build his team around Pogba and he has already been captained on occasion during the last season.
The Red Devils are a different side when the Frenchman is in the starting XI and he could certainly prove the difference in the title race next campaign.
