France midfielder, Paul Pogba, has reacted after his country’s elimination from Euro 2020 at the Round of 16.
Despite being 3-1 up in the 75th minute of the game, the world champions could not stop Switzerland from equalising and defeating them on penalties.
He wrote the following on Instagram (via MEN): “Sometimes football can be cruel… cruel and also beautiful. The game brought us sadness but happiness to our opponents. That’s the beauty of football. Of course we all wish that we could have had a positive result.
“Thank you so much to all of our fans across the globe. It was beautiful to see you, to hear you, and to celebrate with you. You gave us hope and joy throughout all of our games. We will keep our heads up and we will come back stronger. Finally, I want to wish congratulations to Switzerland.”
Pogba was part of the French team that won the World Cup in 2018.
