“It might be my last World Cup,” the Manchester United player, 25, told a news conference ahead of Tuesday’s Group C final game against Denmark.

France have already qualified for the last 16 and will secure top spot if they avoid defeat.

“I’m realistic, we don’t know if I’ll be called up, maybe other players will be better than me,” added Pogba.

“I hope I’ll play more. I’ve already had the chance to play two, some can only dream to play one.”
