France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris reveals that Paul Pogba was urged to calm down by his teammates during Sunday's win over Honduras at the World Cup.

France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has revealed that Paul Pogba was urged to calm down at half time during the team's win over Honduras at the World Cup.

The 21-year-old midfielder was fortunate to escape with just a booking at the start of the match after kicking out at Wilson Palacios.

Les Bleus went on to win the contest comfortably as a 3-0 victory saw them get off to a successful start.

"We all had a word for Paul at half time," Lloris told L'Equipe. "He is still young [but] the message before the game was not to succumb to provocation.

"The referee has shown intelligence. These games are decided on the details and they turned in our favour this time."

France return to action on Friday when they face Switzerland in Salvador.
