Watford midfielder Doucoure: I want to play with Pogba again

Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure admits he's chasing a France call-up.

Doucoure played with Manchester United ace Paul Pogba with France's youth teams.

He watched on TV as Pogba and another former team-mate from the U17s, Samuel Umtiti, lifted the World Cup.

Did he have mixed feelings, wondering what could have been?

Doucoure told The Sun: “Maybe a bit but I'm not really disappointed because I tried to do my best in Watford but I came too late.

“Of course I'd love to play with Paul again one day in the midfield. Why not?

“I'm only 25. I have time to play a World Cup, a European Championship. It's my dream. Now I want to get everything I didn't have in the past."
