Euro 2016, the longest running Euro, finally concluded with Portugal’s triumph. They defeated the host nation France over 120 minutes, after the first 90 produced a stalemate.
Paul Pogba, who is seemingly off to Manchester United this summer, didn’t seem very pleased with his teammates after Eder scored in the second half of extra time.
He was seen lashing out at teammates Blaise Matuidi and Mousa Sissoko after the two didn’t do enough to prevent Eder from taking the shot. The 23-year-old was even seen pointing towards Gignac, criticising him for missing a glorious opportunity just few minutes prior to Portugal’s goal.
Pogba himself, had an average Euro considering his high standards. In many matches, he was played deeper by French manager Didier Deschamps, which curbed the youngster’s attacking instincts, and was thus, unable to come up with his usual tally of goals and assists.
Twitter wasn’t kind to Pogba, with some people calling out his hypocrisy of not performing well enough and yet blaming his teammates, and others mocking his apparent price tag.
Here are few tweets from yesterday night.
Pogba so hyped in all his pride and overrated self, shouting at Sissoko and Gignac who were more useful than he was tonight. Fraud!

Pogba may yet be become a superstar but he's a little off. He's still decorating games rather than dictating like the very best midfielders
