With the scores evenly poised at 1-1 going into the latter stages of the game, Pogba's lobbed effort deflected off Australia full-back Aziz Behich and the crossbar to creep over the goalline. "I think it's an own goal, but it's the action", Mourinho told RT.

France did however labour to their victory against Australia, with a number of their players labelled as below par.

As he made his way to the team bus after France's opening game in Group C, Paul Pogba was realistic about his team's performance. "Yes, I speak with Dybala, but whether I speak to Dybala or speak with [Samuel] Umtiti, who plays at Barcelona, it's not there I will go and play!" said Pogba.

Around two-thirds of the country's population of 27 million relies on aid and 8.4 million are already at risk of starving. Almost 4,500 households have been displaced in Hodeida province so far this month, the United Nations said Sunday.

Ibrahimovic, who is working as a pundit at this year's tournament, said the media target Pogba for financial reasons.

"But as I know him personally, he works very hard, he's very professional, he wants always to improve and when I see all this criticism from everyone it's all jealously because he makes more money than them".

'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". However, a moment of brilliant link up and inspiration between Pogba and Giroud ensured that a looped-in ball that needed goal-line technology to verify ensured that France won the game 2-1 in the 80 minute itself.
