French midfielder Paul Pogba said late on Monday that the reception in Russia, the 2018 FIFA World Cup host, was “amazing”.
“Amazing Russia reception yesterday. Morning with FIFA activities, now off to first train in Russia,” Pogba posted on Twitter.
The French national team arrived in Moscow on Sunday and will be based in the town of Istra, just outside the Russian capital, during the tournament.
The 1998 World Cup winners were drawn in Group C and will face Australia in Kazan on June 16, Peru in Yekaterinburg on June 21 and Denmark in Moscow on June 26.
