Les Bleus have enjoyed a promising start with their new offensive trio – but the Manchester United man says they cannot get carried away.

France star Paul Pogba has warned his team-mates not to get carried away with the trio of Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Antoine Griezmann leading their line.

With Benzema back in the international squad after a long hiatus, France impressed in a 3-0 win over Wales, with the front three dovetailing well.

But Pogba says the world champions should not become complacent following such a bright start to life with their new offensive set-up.

Speaking to TF1 , he said: “You can’t see yourself as being too beautiful. You shouldn’t see yourself as beautiful at all. I don’t want to get carried away too much because we’ve already been built up enough, I think.

“Of course it’s scary for other teams, but it can also be scary for us too. It can put pressure on us because of the team we have, that we feel that we’re guaranteed to win or even to always score three goals.

“People are going to expect all of this. But that’s not football. It’s the ego that kills you.

“In this squad, there is none. There is not one person above another.”
