Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has praised the ‘mature’ display from Paul Pogba as France beat Belgium in the first 2018 World Cup semi final on Tuesday night, with the United midfielder one of the best performers on the pitch.

France won the tie 1-0 thanks to a set piece goal from Samuel Umtiti, but Les Bleus also controlled the game and shut down Belgium after the Red Devils had started the game brighter.

Mourinho told Russia Today : “I think a very good performance by Pogba. Pogba was mature, he played with maturity when he had to, to hold position and keep control of the play he did.”
