Knowing he is not certain to play in any future tournaments , the Manchester United midfielder is desperate to win the trophy this summer .Paul Pogba wants to help France win the 2018 World Cup as he is “ realistic ” over the possibility of never playing in the tournament again.

The Manchester United midfielder has helped Les Bleus record wins over Australia and Peru in Russia , sending them through to the last 16 with a game to spare in Group C .

However , Didier Deschamps ’ side have yet to dazzle ahead of their clash with second -place Denmark on Tuesday , with Pogba ’ s performances once again coming under intense media scrutiny .

However , having missed out on glory on home soil at Euro 2016 , where France lost to Portugal in the final , the 25 – year – old is less interested in what his critics have to say and is instead focused only on making sure France lift the trophy on July 15 .

“ Maybe it ’ s my last World Cup, we do not know , ” he told reporters .

“ I ’ m really enjoying myself , I ’ m going to forget the critics , do my talking on the pitch as it ’ s the only answer .

Asked why it could be his last tournament , considering his age , Pogba replied : “ I ’ m realistic about the fact that it may be my last World Cup.

“ We do not know what’ s going to happen tomorrow , maybe I ’ ll be injured or there will be players who will outperform me .

“ But I hope to do more than one . Some players do not even play one World Cup in their careers . ”
