Didier Deschamps said midfielder Paul Pogba, whose performances for France have been underwhelming during the recent friendlies, is "very likely" to start the World Cup opener against Australia.

Pogba has drawn criticism for seemingly not living up to expectations at Manchester United this past season, following his big-money move from Juventus in 2016.

Sagna thinks his compatriot hasn't received fair treatment and that people expect too much from him because of his huge price tag.

Manchester United midfielder Pogba struck the post, while Nabil Fekir was denied in the final moments of the game by goalkeeper Zack Steffen.

"Paul is a special character and he's very important for the team", the 35-year-old told Sky Sports News.
