Pogba on Euros 2020 Exit: Sometimes Football Can Be Cruel

Paul Pogba has opened up on the shock exit of France from the 2020 UEFA European Championship (Euros) earlier this week.

The Blues battled to a 3-3 draw against Switzerland at the National Arena in Bucharest, Romania on Monday, 28 June. Despite their best efforts, Pogba’s side lost out 4-5 in the penalty shootouts, knocking them out of the Euros.

The 28-year-old Manchester United midfielder enjoyed an excellent tournament, so much so that many thought he would earn the “Player of the Tournament” award. But when his team-mate, Kylian Mbappe, missed his penalty shot, Pogba still felt immensely let down.

On Wednesday, 30 June, Pogba shared his disappointment on Instagram by posting three photos from the game, mainly featuring the French team.

In the caption, he wrote: “Sometimes football can be cruel … cruel and also beautiful. Of course, we all wished that we could have had a positive result. Thank you so much to all of our fans across the globe.”

He ended off with: “Finally, I want to wish congratulations to Switzerland.”
