The 2018 FIFA World Cup provided football fans from all over the world a number of exciting matches, shock defeats, eliminations and the showcasing of new stars who made their presence felt on the greatest football stage.
Pogba put in his latest assured display of a quietly impressive tournament at Russian Federation 2018 as Samuel Umtiti's header downed Belgium 1-0 in St Petersburg on Tuesday.
They have a shot at redemption after losing its last two major finals - at the 2006 World Cup when Zinedine Zidane was sent off for a nasty head-butt and the 2016 European Championship on home soil. They beat Colombia in the round of 16 and Sweden in the quarter-final only to go down fighting against Croatia.
It was never going to happen, of course, as the ecstasy of taking a tiny nation to the final of the World Cup for the first time needed to be worked through with the people that provided the players with support and inspiration. That means that 70 of the 161 goals scored at this World Cup have come from set pieces.
"On behalf of the whole LFC family we wish you from the bottom of our hearts all the best", Klopp told CNN Sport.
Paul Pogba summed up France's ruthless mentality in the game, saying: "I am not a natural defender, but I want to win the World Cup, and you have to make sacrifices". But they are mentally very strong. We stay as we are from the start of the tournament.
The Irishman, who is the first UFC fighter to hold world titles in two separate weight divisions simultaneously, is attending the World Cup Final between France and Croatia in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium. "It's really not good, very bitter. we really want to finish well, with a smile". But I have no star either although there is one on my shirt. "They have (Mario) Mandzukic, (Ivan) Rakitic and (Ivan) Perisic", Pogba said.
While the other pre-tournament favourites have crashed and burned along the way, Didier Deschamps' outfit have moved seamlessly through with the minimum of fuss - as seen in the professional way they closed out their 1-0 semi-final win over Belgium. We had the chance to win the final of the Euros, but we missed a wonderful thing and we must not let this chance pass.
