Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has big World Cup hopes with France.

It will be Pogba's first major tournament with the senior France team.

"We are a solid group and aim to do better than 2010," the midfielder told journalists in Brazil.

"Didier Deschamps is a Coach who won the World Cup in 1998, so that is a big advantage. Are we afraid? Not remotely, as it's a pleasure to be here and we want to give pleasure to the rest of our country too.

"Playing in the World Cup is the dream of every player, but winning is even better. I always work to improve and to be the best. I know that I'll never be a star, but I love football and give my life for this sport."
