The 2018 FIFA World Cup has enthralled one and all, owing to the jaw-dropping encounters the tournament has dished out thus far. France are ranked number 7 and are undoubtedly one of the stronger teams. They have made a stupendous start to the event with wins in their first two matches. Yuvraj Singh, the Indian cricketer, must be happy with their performance as he is rooting for the team.

France managed to humble Australia in their opening match and they followed it up with another resounding victory versus Peru by 1-0, yesterday. They are also sitting pretty at the top of the points table of Group C with 6 points and only have one match remaining versus Denmark on June 26 at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.


“He can never score goals”- Yuvraj

Meanwhile, Yuvraj has revealed why he is supporting France in the mega extravaganza. “Past few World Cups, I supported Brazil, but this year I am supporting France because it has Paul Pogba, who is a Manchester United player,” the all-rounder was quoted as saying in his YouTube channel SportScreenIndia.

Yuvraj, himself, is an ardent football fan as he has been spotted watching United’s Premier League home matches at the Old Trafford. The 36-year old also put forth the football skills of the current bunch of Indian cricketers. Moreover, he commented about the likes of Virat Kohli who has been an epitome of fitness in the national team.

“Virat is really fit and can run the length and breadth of the pitch with high speed, but unfortunately, he can never score goals. He has a lot of skills but sadly lacks the finish. I think he needs to work on that. Jasprit Bumrah shouldn’t play football. Hardik Pandya is a really bad footballer. He too needs to improve his football skills,” the Punjab-cricketer added.
