Deschamps and Griezmann defend Pogba after he is jeered by France fans

Balotelli forced Lloris to save low with his foot within seconds of the restart after half-time, while Dembele rattled the crossbar moments later having burst past a pair of Italy defenders. It was just a rehearsal for a similar move after the break, when the Barcelona striker this time curled another attractive shot into the top corner. It's not just for him, at one point we kept the ball and they whistled too.

"It could have been a bigger scoreline".

Corentin Tolisso is upset by whistles aimed at Paul Pogba in the win over Italy.

Despite an underwhelming display from the Manchester United midfielder, Griezmann quickly sprang to his teammate's defence. He plays his game, you're used to him scoring. But Dembele is a very young player, a very talented player that we are, of course, expecting a lot from.

Griezmann came close to leaving Atletico last summer, with Manchester United thought to be interested, but performed a U-turn after the club were hit with a transfer ban of their own. Everyone represents the French team, ' Tolisso said.

Hamilton stopped as early as lap 12 and had to manage a set of ultrasofts for the remaining 66 laps. Vettel said it had been a tricky race and "Daniel had the answer at all times".

Dembele has come out in support of his global team-mate and insisted that it doesn't matter what Pogba does on the pitch, he will never be able to satisfy some of his detractors. Personally, when you witness this kind of whistling - and I also noticed some for Florian Thauvin - it's exasperating, it annoys me.

It's hard to know exactly how to view the career of Paul Pogba so far. It hurts because I wouldn't want to be whistled, even if I went to Saint-Etienne as an ex-Lyon player.

"Fans need to realise this". We're all on the same boat, and we have to all stick together'. "He's the best player of the history of football", Bartomeu said.

"He is taking a little time to say what is next for him and I think there is perhaps some doubt on his part", Costa told a news conference.

A decision will be made before France kick off their World Cup bid, however, with Les Bleus opening the tournament with a Group C meeting with Australia on June 16.
