The 25-year-old, who had an impressive tournament, netted Les Bleus' third of the evening, and became the first Manchester United player to score in the final of the showpiece in the process.

During France's celebrations after the final whistle, Pogba said he had been dreaming of this moment since he was a little boy, and admitted he had a few inspiring words for his team before the fixture kicked off.

"It is a dream since I was a young boy. I hope we have made the people proud," the Frenchman said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

"I told everyone before the game, 'We are 90 minutes away from realising our dream, we are 90 minutes from entering into history books for life, and we were 90 minutes away from making France rock – even children, and their children, will know about this.

"'So, guys, we can do this. There are two teams and a cup, and we are not going to let another team take this cup.'

"That is all I told them."

Pogba played six games in Russia, scoring one goal and assisting one further strike in 539 minutes of action.
