‘My guy supporting France,’ Pogba said in the post, with both chuckling at the comments about McKennie’s hairdo.
He debuted his new cut at the World Cup with the red, white, and blue of the American flag colored into his hair.
Even with the joke, McKennie raised a fist of support before saying ‘Ici c’est Paris’ – translated to ‘This is Paris’ – a slogan of the club Paris Saint-Germain.

Pogba also appears to be back in training after a thigh injury forced him to miss the World Cup
McKennie had an excellent showing in Qatar with the US Men’s National Team – making it out of the group before falling to Holland in the Round of 16.
He was part of a critical midfield trio of himself, Tyler Adams, and Yunus Musah who were the core of the USMNT system.
As for Pogba, he seemed to be on track to make the France squad, but he picked up a thigh injury back in October which forced him to sit out the World Cup.
The final between Argentina and France is set for this Sunday.
