Pogba impressed during France win against Belgium in the World Cupsemi-finals

Antoine Griezmann has issued a brilliant response to Thibaut Courtois' salty comments after the Belgium goalkeeper criticised France's tactics in their World Cup semi-final victory on Tuesday.

The ex-Super Eagles winger, who is a member of FIFA's Technical Study Group, said that France are the favorites to win the final due to their influential midfielder, N'Golo Kanté.

"Does Thibaut Courtois think he plays Barcelona football at Chelsea?".

The Les Blues have progressed to the final of the tournament and are set to meet the victor of the other semi between England and Croatia on Sunday.

"He's a very loved person in France, on the pitch he shows he's a big guy and I want him to score a goal in the final on Sunday". Obviously, I live for football. The Atletico Madrid forward also mocked the style of football played by the Belgian football at Chelsea. We are winning. It's always nice to win and it is nice to hear nice things about the team, about yourself and everything.

"I can improve and get better and better".

"It's not done yet".

The 25-year-old has been in good form for Les Bleus at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, especially in the three knockout fixtures they have played so far, against Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium.

"We started our dream and now we need to finish it".

France will play Croatia in the World Cup final at 4pm on Sunday, and will be heavy favourites as they look to lift the trophy for the second time in their history.
