France captain Hugo Lloris believes that Manchester United's Paul Pogba felt like he had a point to prove during the recent international friendly against England.

France captain Hugo Lloris has claimed that Paul Pogba had a point to prove during Tuesday's international friendly against England.

The Manchester United midfielder's performances were questioned at various stages of last season following his world-record £89m move from Juventus, but he was one of the standout players in Paris as 10-man France came from behind to beat England 3-2.

Lloris believes that Pogba was extra motivated to put in a good performance at the Stade de France and is confident that the 24-year-old will continue to improve.

"Maybe he had some things to prove, because he belongs to one of the best clubs in the world and he plays in the Premier League, and he has to show his level," he told reporters.

"Against England, he was fantastic and as a midfielder he helped the team a lot to manage the ball. I have no doubt that he will get better and better."

Pogba has now made 47 appearances for his country, scoring eight goals.
