Paul Pogba hails "proudest moment" of his career

Paul Pogba describes scoring against Nigeria as "one of the best moments" of his life as France booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

France midfielder Paul Pogba has described scoring against Nigeria in the last 16 of the World Cup as being "one of the proudest moments" of his life.

The 21-year-old made the breakthrough for his side 11 minutes from time in Brasilia, as France booked their place in the quarter-finals with a 2-0 victory.

"I knew there was a whole country that would support us - scoring that goal has freed us," Pogba told TF1. "I am very happy for the team and for the whole of France.

"Playing in the last eight of the World Cup has always been a dream of mine. This is one of the proudest moments of my life."

France will face the winner of tonight's Algeria-Germany clash, live commentary of which can be found here.
