Dembélé, Pogba subjected to monkey chants in Russian Federation

Dembélé, Pogba subjected to monkey chants in Russian Federation

Jose Mourinho has not given up on Paul Pogba and has enlisted the help of France boss Didier Deschamps to get the best out of the midfielder, according to reports.

Pogba then netted one for himself just after the break with a sumptuous curling free-kick from around 30 yards out.

Russian Federation would have something to say about the affair, when Fyodor Smolov capped off a well-worked counterattacking move to make the score 2-1.

The game was preceded by a minute's silence to remember the 64 people, including 41 children, who were killed in a fire at a Siberian shopping centre on Sunday.

The impressive Pogba then won and lined up a free-kick on 49 minutes, curling over the wall and into the bottom corner past Lunev.

Mbappe put France into a 40th-minute lead when he latched on to Pogba's through ball, cut inside and lashed in a low shot.

The Manchester United star has struggled for form recently and fallen out of Mourinho's starting XI, while he was also dropped for France's friendly last week against Colombia - though made a triumphant, goalscoring return against Russian Federation on Tuesday. Fans also allegedly racially abused an injured player in their match against RB Leipzig earlier in March, with UEFA set to hear the case on May 31. "We need to analyse our performance quietly".

Drobga spent four hugely successful seasons playing for Mourinho at Chelsea, and is the top scoring African player in Premier League history.

"It was heated between us a few times, but Jose will never attack people he doesn't like,"Drogba told Telefoot. Luckily, we will not play against Brazil or France in our World Cup group".
