France and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has published a classy message on social media after France’s Euro 2020 elimination at the hands of Switzerland on Monday.
Pogba wrote on Instagram: “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 wished 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.”
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba scored a sensational goal in the clash to make it 3-1 in the second half, but the Swiss side rallied back towards the end to make it 3-3 and force a penalty shootout.
In the end, it was Kylian Mbappe’s penalty that was saved by Yann Sommer to knock out the French side – who were the favorites to win the entire thing.
