Pogba has played well at the World Cup, being a key part of France's run to the final and even attracting praise from long-term detractors such as Graeme Souness.

Les Bleus have advanced to the final of the tournament in Russian Federation with victories over Australia, Peru, Argentina, Belgium, Uruguay as well as a draw with Denmark.

Yet the Irishman has been impressed with the France midfielder at this World Cup and he is backing Pogba to inspire a victory for his nation in the biggest game of them all.

But with Croatia having played 90 minutes more after coming through three periods of extra-time - and having a day less to recover than France - Les Bleus are the heavy favourites to win their second World Cup.

'I am not going to lie. 'We told ourselves that we had won already after beating Germany that was the real final for us. I wouldn't say that I'm young but I'm not old, yet, and we are going through nice things and want to finish it.

Deschamps' side beat Belgium to reach the final - 20 years after their manager cpatained the country to their maiden World Cup triumph on home soil.

'I do not have a star.

That is not a sign of a struggling team, according to Pogba, but one that has a lot of talent.

'For me, we are not favourites. We will play against big players, world class players.

La Liga's president Javier Tebas said: "When the moment is right and everyone is ready I would like to invite the children and their coach to go to a Liga game".

Real Madrid's Luka Modric is Croatia's captain and has nearly singlehandedly led his nation to the final, potentially at the cusp of winning it too.

"Croatia do not have stars [on their shirt] - they want one".
