More than a challenge of Nations League, the one between Belgium e France played at Allianz Stadium in Torino it was a true parade of stars. Prowess of champions, a great desire to win on both sides and a memorable second half, with the comeback of the world champions and a vibrant ending, with Pogba’s crossbar on a free-kick and the goal canceled by Lukaku before Theo Hernandez’s winning shot .
One of the protagonists of the game that extended Belgium’s fast of victories in direct clashes with the “cousins”, unbeaten since 1981, was precisely Paul pogba, once again among the best in France, as already happened during the ominous Euro 2020 campaign, which saw Deschamps’ team sensationally eliminated on penalties by Switzerland already in the round of 16.
Now between France and the trophy there is only the Spain who got the better of Italy in the first semifinal.
“Spain are very strong and we know it, but we are ready and we want to win this cup” said Pogba at the end of the match to the microphones of ‘Sport Mediaset’, without being able to escape the usual question about his future, which is inevitable given that Paul he returned to play and win for one night in the stadium which made him great with Juventus.
With his contract expiring in June 2023 with the Red Devils, Pogba is cyclically approached to the Bianconeri, as well as to other top teams such as Real Madrid.
The world champion understandably glossed over, however admitting both frequent contacts with former teammates and having lived special years in Italy and at Juventus.
“Do the Juventus want me back here? I always talk to my former teammates, Cuadrado who always likes my posts and not only with him. I still have a year of contract, I want to finish well there and then let’s see. I was certainly very good at Juventus ”.
Then, on the match: “We had a very good start in the first 25 minutes, making the ball turn well with quality, then we conceded two goals and stopped playing. In the second half it was a completely different game, we did very well. I’m sorry for Belgium which is a great team, in their defeat I reviewed the one we suffered against Switzerland in the European Championship when we were reassembled, but this is football ”.
