What’s this got to do with Pogba?France dont have a very good system and dont perform at a level where i'd be desperate to copy them.
They've shoehorned their best players into a team with a few workhorses like Giroud and Matuidi to make it work. And it worked pretty well mostly but it was fairly scrappy, fairly stop start and was often carried by individual moments of brilliance (and the teams they play being pretty run of the mill).
The standard we need to meet to compete with City or Chelsea or hell even Liverpool is higher than that French team could manage in my view. They have an embarrassing amount of talent available but it just doesn't come off when i've watched them. Maybe they were incredible against Ukraine but i'm not sure how much it even matters with the standard you'd expect of Ukraine.
