PAUL POGBA watched the World Cup during a gym session as he continues his recovery from injury.
It came after a lengthy period on the sidelines, with Pogba not yet having played a competitive game for Juventus since returning in the summer.
And he shared photos and videos to social media on Thursday as he strengthened his body in the gym.
But perhaps the most interesting part of the post was that it showed he was watching the World Cup while training.
At a closer look, you can see he has Canada vs Morocco on the TV, keeping a close eye on the conclusion of Group F.
It ended with Morocco booking their place in the last-16 for the first time since 1986.
They went through as group winners, while Croatia knocked out Belgium after holding them to a goalless draw.
Meanwhile, Pogba will undoubtedly have a keen eye on France as they bid to retain the World Cup after lifting it with him four years ago.
If Didier Deschamps’ men manage to achieve the feat, they would become the first nation since Brazil in 1962 to win back-to-back editions of the World Cup.
A much-changed side then lost 1-0 to Tunisia in their final group game on Wednesday.
But they still finished top of Group D and will face Poland in the last-16 on Sunday.
