Pogba: Atletico Madrid ace Griezmann can match Zidane

Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann can match French legend Zinedine Zidane.

So says his France teammate Paul Pogba, of Manchester United.

"Zinedine Zidane is a legend and football icon and Griezmann is on his way to becoming one too," he told a press conference.

"He's a very loved person in France, on the pitch he shows he's a big guy, and I want him to score a goal in the final on Sunday."

On the World Cup final, Pogba added: "I don't know if Croatia has a disadvantage [due to tiredness], but against England they never surrendered.

"[In the 2016 Euros] we thought it was done and that we had won the trophy by beating Germany in the semi-finals.

"This time we don't want to make that mistake and we will approach the game differently."
