Pogba, 28, got his campaign with France off to a flyer last night, as Les Bleus defeated Germany 1-0 in Munich.

The midfielder’s performance earned him the man of the match award, a fact not unnoticed by Fernandes.

While watching Pogba’s post-match interview on TV Fernandes, 26, took to Instagram to stoke the friendly fire.

He wrote: “Happy for you, but MVP only today.”

Fernandes followed his message with the ‘eyes’ emoji, before tagging Pogba.

The attacking midfielder himself got off to a good start with defending champions Portugal.

But it wasn’t all plain sailing.

Fernando Santos’ side took 84 minutes to break down a stubborn Hungary side in front of a raucous crowd in Budapest.

Raphael Guerreiro finally broke the deadlock, before Cristiano Ronaldo added a late double.

France then took on Germany later that evening.

Pogba produced a sensational pass in the build-up to Mats Hummels’ own goal and looked his best alongside N’Golo Kante and Adrien Rabiot.
