Pogba also became the first United player to score in a World Cup final - a rasper from the edge of the box to put his side 3-1 up in the second half - and the first Premier League player to do so since Emmanuel Petit, then of Arsenal, when Les Bleus last won it on home soil in 1998.
It has been a memorable tournament for our Academy graduate, who will go a long way to silencing his critics as he once again showed he can handle the pressure and expectation of a major tournament - having claimed the Best Young Player award at the last World Cup in Brazil and impressed throughout his country's run to the Euro 2016 final on home soil. Pogba played a part in all three of his side's goals in the group stages, as he was involed in the build-up to Antoine Griezmann's penalty in their opening win over Australia, teeing up the late winner. He also set up Kylian Mbappe's solitary strike in the second match, a 1-0 victory over Peru. In a France side boasting a watertight defence, a powerful and energetic midfield and devastating counter-attacking prowess, spearheaded by the golden talent of 19 year old Mbappe, Pogba has been superb.
