Paul Pogba has been at the center of criticisms after France crashed out of Euro 2020 in the round of 16 following their loss to Switzerland, Sport Bible.

The French side had a bad game until Hugo Lloris saved a penalty and they got into gear to score two goals in four minutes.

Pogba then scored the goal of the match as Les Bleus were up by 3-1 but looked ordinary in the last 15 minutes of the games as the Swiss side came back.

World Cup winner with France Emmanuel Petit described how Pogba was responsible for his team's defeat while they were 3-1 up.

He told PaddyPower per Metro:

"I don't really understand what happened to France versus Switzerland.
"During the game we only played well for 20 minutes after [Hugo] Lloris stopped the penalty. After it, we looked confident and like a good team.
"But then there was one incident - Pogba lost the ball for the second Swiss goal - and France collapsed.
"We lost everything. Concentration, team spirit, desire - and the tie. Worst of all, we started fighting on the pitch between ourselves.
"There was a big clash between [Adrien] Rabiot and Pogba, who lost the plot, after the second Swiss goal and from then on we had no control, no confidence.
"We looked average - it's hard to explain.
"[Kylian] Mbappe was asking for more responsibilities before the tournament, and there were stories about not passing the ball to [Olivier] Giroud."
