Manchester United ace Paul Pogba was given a spot in the starting line-up in France’s first 2018 World Cup qualification clash against Belarus.
Pogba was one of seven Premier League players in the France national team. Fellow United star Martial was also picked in the starting line-up. Arsenal defender Koscielny and striker Olivier Giroud, Chelsea, midfielder Kante, Crystal Palace goalkeeper and Tottenham summer signing Sissoko are also in the team.
France starting line-up vs. Belarus: Mandanda; Sidibé, VARANE (C), Koscielny, Kurzawa; Kanté, Pogba; Sissoko, Griezmann, Martial; Giroud
Only four players in the starting French side do not currently play in the Premier League.
Pogba revealed that he was prepared for the France game against Belarus ahead of the game and it is no surprise he’s in a confident mood after providing two assists in the 3-1 victory over Italy in a recent international friendly.
The French international joined United on a record breaking transfer fee from Juventus over the summer transfer window.
