Pogba delighted with France call-up

Paul Pogba has claimed that he is 'very happy' to have been called up by the French national team.

The Juventus midfielder has been named in Didier Deschamps' squad for the World Cup qualifiers with Georgia and Spain this month after some impressive performances for the Bianconeri.

“I am very happy for this opportunity,” he told reporters. “I was surprised, but I know I will not be playing from the first minute.

“Whatever happens it will be a great experience for me.

“I am increasingly convinced about my decision to join Juventus [from Manchester United]. I am really happy to be here.”
