France midfielder Paul Pogba has said that while he doesn’t believe he is guaranteed a place in Didier Deschamps’ line-up for the World Cup, he hopes he can win a spot in the team, Sky Sports has reported.

Pogba added that the France squad is very much united and if he is overlooked, he will remain part of the team and stressed the importance of a group success over individual laurels. “We are a group. If someone is injured, there will always be a player to replace him,” Pogba told L’Equipe.

“Moussa [Sissoko] played very well against Jamaica. I am not guaranteed a place in the starting XI. I just feel like a French team player,” Pogba continued. “People say I am nonchalant, that I play easy, but that is how my football has been since I was a kid. That doesn’t prevent me from being focused.

“I am realising my dream. I am happy and proud of what has been achieved so far, but it is not over. It is nice to play at a World Cup, but it is much better to win. I hope we will go as far as possible in the competition.”

The former Manchester United midfielder has been linked with a host of big-name clubs across Europe this summer, having quit Old Trafford for Juventus in 2012. He has gone on to win the title twice in Italy, making 85 appearances, scoring 13 goals and winning 11 caps for France.
