Amid France‘s frustrating performances in their opening Group C match against Australia, Paul Pogba has said that he believes he is the most criticised player on the planet.
In spite of scoring a goal in Les Blue’s slim 2-1 triumph against Australia yesterday, the Manchester United midfielder went under criticism for his performances against the ‘Socceroos’.
Paul Pogba scored a deflected shot, which was affirmed by Video Assistant Referee, in the 80th minute of the match to give ‘Les Bleus’ the three-point against an Australian team who fought energetically in the match.

Addressing ‘Telefoot’ on Sunday, Pogba conceded that the side needed to improve as the competition progresses, but that winning the match was the most important thing. He also revealed that he feels unreasonably target for his performances.
“I’m given less room to make mistakes than others. I’ve gone from the most expensive player in the world to the most criticised,”
