France boss Didier Deschamps has hailed Paul Pogba as a complete midfielder ahead of their last-16 clash with Switzerland at Euro 2020.

Pogba is currently with Les Bleus at Euro 2020 and has turned in some great performances in the group stages, helping his side qualify as the first team from the group of death.

Pogba was named man of the match against

Germany

in their Euro 2020 opening game, before getting an assist in the 2-2 draw with

Portugal

in the final group match. He has affirmed his role as a key player in Didier Deschamps' midfield.

Speaking in a pre-match press conference,

Deschamps

praised

Manchester United

’s midfielder.

“Paul is a complete midfielder,”

Deschamps told the media.

“He has that quality of passing, it's part of his game. You have to have the right movement. He has a fairly free role. He is not limited on the offensive aspect, his position can change, it depends on the placement and movement of other players.”

France will not have some of their players for the last-16 clash with Switzerland, so some of the players have asked for a change in formation.

“I like to speak with my players before deciding, a little more with the more experienced players,”

he said.

“The objective is to put them in positions so that they are efficient. But it’s me who makes the decisions.

“It’s an option for us, which we can take or not. The choice I’ll make is to be as dangerous as possible for our opponents.”
