Paul Pogba concedes he’ll have to “limit attacking runs” with France at the World Cup compared to Juventus.
“We are a solid group and aim to do better than 2010,” the midfielder told journalists in Brazil.
“Didier Deschamps is a Coach who won the World Cup in 1998, so that is a big advantage. Are we afraid? Not remotely, as it’s a pleasure to be here and we want to give pleasure to the rest of our country too.
“Playing in the World Cup is the dream of every player, but winning is even better. I always work to improve and to be the best. I know that I’ll never be a star, but I love football and give my life for this sport."
The 21-year-old scored nine goals and provided 16 assists in all club games this season, but has to take a different approach with Les Bleus.
“Deschamps asks me to perform to the max, to play my football and give 100 per cent. Here I will have less freedom when defending than I do with Juve and must limit my attacking runs.”
