Paul Pogba Paris

The French playmaker Paul Pogba has finally shown up in this tournament and he carries the hope of a troubled country on his shoulders

Even if France did not win against Switzerland last night, Sepp’s “Man Of The Match” was Pogba. He was everywhere and could have scored four goals in the first twenty minutes alone. A good Swiss keeper and the goal post denied him but this match will be remembered as the moment in Euro 2016 when big Paul finally showed off his fantastic skills. Having been embroiled in a fight with the uber critical French media who practically seemed to want him to fail, the youngster gave the best possible answer with this game.

At the same time, Pogba is one of adidas biggest signings with the potential to become one of the world’s most important players. And not only for his style of play, also because Paul is also a fashion plate. With his signature haircuts and cool styling he is a star on and off the pitch – whether for France or for his club team Juventus. Pogba is also a big lover of fashion having recently attended the Balmain men’s show with his buddy Karim Benzema who is not part of the France squad this time. Understandably as Benzema is currently under investigation for allegedly participating in the blackmailing of a French national team-mate. adidas had Pogba photographed with a few of his buddies right next to the Eiffel Tower.
