Paul Pogba went some way to answering his critics on Sunday afternoon when scoring for France against Croatia in the World Cup final. His strike from outside the box, the first player to do this in the final since 1982, put his country 3-1 ahead. France went on to win 4-2.
Pogba is a world champion.
