Morgan Schneiderlin enjoying "amazing" dream at World Cup

Morgan Schneiderlin admits that it feels "amazing" to have made the breakthrough on the international stage.

Morgan Schneiderlin has admitted that it is a dream come true to be playing for France at the World Cup.

The Southampton midfielder was playing in League One just a few seasons ago, but he believes that breaking through on the international stage is his reward for what he has achieved in England.

"It's a dream come true to be here, playing in the Maracana, which is an amazing stadium," Schneiderlin told reporters.

"In football, things move so quickly. Four or five years ago, I was playing in League One and now I'm playing in the Maracana.

"It's just amazing. But I feel it's a reward for the work I've put in. It was not an easy time at Southampton sometimes."

France take on Germany inside the Maracana in their quarter-final on Friday.
