Euro2016: France have not achieved anything yet! - Juventus star Pogba

Paul Pogba was thrilled with France's performance in the Euro2016 quarter-final against Iceland on Sunday night.

Les Bleus defeated Iceland 5-2 in Paris to book their place in the semi-finals where they will take on Germany in Marseille on Thursday.

While Pogba was enthused with how Didier Deschamps' outfit performed, he knows very well that qualifying for the final four in a home tournament is not a satisfactory outcome, especially for the expectant French fans.

"It was a good match, a great victory, we scored five goals, and we're pleased to be in the semis, against Germany it will be nice game," Pogba said.

"I was pretty good out there but wherever the coach picks me I give 100%.

"I'm not going to say we'll score five goals every game but we're really pleased.

"In the last matches we started slowly, we did drop the tempo towards the end but you need to start and finish well, we'll try and take that in the next game.

"France are determined. We want to win because we're the hosts but Germany will also want to win.

"We haven achieved anything yet, we're going to take our time, focus on the next game, and try to get into the final."

Juventus ace Pogba got himself on the scoresheet with a thumping header for France's second goal, while Olivier Giroud netted a brace with Dimitri Payet and Antoine Griezmann also getting in on the act.
