France star Griezmann doesn't care about Courtois' criticism

Mourinho singled out Pogba and Varane for praises

Antoine Griezmann has issued a brilliant response to Thibaut Courtois' salty comments after the Belgium goalkeeper criticised France's tactics in their World Cup semi-final victory on Tuesday.

"So, we have to be proud to be French and I want young people to say, 'Vive la France!'".

If the Belgium 'keeper feels so strongly about the brand of football that should be played to triumph, maybe he should hand back his league winners medals. Griezmann asked in his pre-match press conference.

However, Griezmann insists that all his team cares about is winning the tournament.

"I was top scorer but we lost, so I said to myself: "I am going to score less to see if we can win".

Pogba and France will take on Croatia in the final of the World Cup in Moscow on Sunday.

Belgium did most of the probing in the game but were contained by Didier Deschamps' side, who progressed to the final courtesy of Samuel Umtiti's victor just after half-time.

"[In the 2016 Euros] we thought it was done and that we had won the trophy by beating Germany in the semi-finals".

"They weren't better than us".
