The Pol­ish fans will hope he can de­liver once again in tonight’s quar­ter-fi­nal against Portugal.

GRIEZ­MANN: POGBA CRU­CIAL TO FRANCE

France’s An­toine Griez­mann may have grabbed the head­lines against Ire­land, but the striker be­lieves it is Paul Pogba who will play a key role against Ice­land on Sun­day. He said: “He’s a player that we need. We don’t need him to score goals but to re­trieve the ball and to get the team play­ing. He does a huge amount for the team.”
