Xavi unimpressed by French pair Mbappe, Pogba: More physical than technical

Barcelona legend Xavi is unconvinced by France pair Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba.

Xavi believes PSG striker Mbappe is overrated for his age, while he says Manchester United midfielder Pogba is more physical than technical.

"Not a fan of Kylian Mbappé? We must qualify," Xavi told JDD. "He's a great striker for 19 years of age, who has showed nice things with PSG and will improve further.

"Mbappé will be one of the cracks of tomorrow. But I find him more physical than talented, like Pogba I think, even if I have not seen him play this season."

Both Mbappe and Pogba featured for France in yesterday's World Cup win over Australia.
