Defending champions Portugal drew 2-2 with France to qualify for the last 16 of Euro 2020 as one of the best third-placed teams.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice – his 108th and 109th goals – both from the penalty spot.

However, it wasn’t enough to earn Portugal victory as Karim Benzema scored twice to ensure France progress to the knockout rounds being top of the group.

Benzema broke a six-year goal drought, his first goal came from the spot, while his second goal came from a stunning pass from Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.

It was a superb performance from Pogba who has been outstanding for France in the European championships to date.

UEFA’s Euro 2020 Twitter page posted a picture of Pogba describing him as “world-class”. Many fans have responded to that post.

It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Pogba has been one of the best midfielders of the tournament so far.

It is a mystery why Pogba has failed to replicate his best form for United, and that his future will be speculated about after the end of the tournament.

United are keen to keep him at the club and offer him a new contract extension. He has a contract at the club until 2022, and many fans want United to sell him to the highest bidder.

Pogba is truly a world-class midfielder but he needs a proper system to flourish.
