The Manchester United midfielder scored his team's third goal in that game, and was at the heart of Les Bleus' World Cup campaign, starting six of France's seven games.

A 4-2 win over Croatia in Moscow saw the 25-year-old take the opportunity to dab with the trophy and call out his critics.

After excelling against Belgium in the semi-final, Dunphy says Pogba's performance in the final was "superb", getting in on the scoring act in the six-goal finale.

"It's about him understanding why he was so good, especially in the second part of the competition", he said.

Pogba came under criticism before the tournament began, as he was booed off by the French fans in a warm up match for the World Cup.

He was left out of the starting line-up for both legs of United's Champions League last-16 defeat by Sevilla.
