'Pogba had been player of the tournament' - Man Utd star lit up Euro 2020 before France crashed out, says Rooney


The midfielder could not add to his international haul after the World Cup winners were knocked out in the last 16, despite some electric performances

Paul Pogba was the star of Euro 2020 before France were eliminated, says Wayne Rooney, who hopes that the midfielder can replicate his international form at Manchester United.

Pogba was one of the most consistent performers for Didier Deschamps' side as they topped Group F against rivals Portugal and Germany in the tournament's early stages.

But the World Cup holders were handed a shock exit in the last 16 by neighbours Switzerland in a dramatic penalty shootout finale, to leave Pogba high and dry - a departure that came far too soon for what Rooney considered a player of the tournament contender
