After France's traumatic defeat at the hands of Portugal in the Euro 2016 final this past summer, it's fair to say that they have responded well over the course of the past few months. 

Didier Deschamps' side have hit back with three wins and one draw to cement their place at the summit of their World Cup qualifying group. 

France's latest victory came against Sweden at the Stade de France as goals from Paul Pogba and Dimitri Payet secured all three points for the home side.

Emil Forsberg had given Sweden the lead with a thunderous free-kick, but France hit back in style to claim the win. 

Unsurprisingly, then, there was a good mood around the France camp following the contest in Paris.

And, as you can see in the video below, two players, in particular, were well and truly in the mood to celebrate. 

Indeed, a video has been released of Patrice Evra and Pogba very much doing their thing to Marvin Gaye's classic 'Let's get it on'.

Yes, it really is hilariously glorious and you can see it here:

France victory 

France boss Deschamps praised France following their win, insisting that opponents fear his team. 

The France head coach told TF1, as per Goal.com: "There are a lot of teams that will defend against us - we already saw that against Netherlands. It shows that our opponents fear us and we have to find solutions for that.

"I did not expect an easy game, so it is great to have three more points.

"It was a difficult match for us because Sweden are a good team. They are very strong physically and well organised. They played a classic 4-4-2 and were comfortable on the ball.

"When the opponent shuts up shop, you have to move the ball around more quickly and keep on moving. That is never easy."

Pogba performance 

Deschamps also discussed Pogba's performance, claiming that the Manchester United man isn't a goal-scorer. 

As per the Mirror, the France boss stated: “He is not a goal-scorer. He can score goals and has done so but I don't especially expect him to do that. 

“If he scores, all the better. I know he likes scoring but it is not what I or the team expect from him.

“For Manchester (United) he is used in a different position in a different system. He gave us a lot of fluidity with the ball and was good at winning possession back.”

Do you expect Pogba to hit top form at United in the near future? Have your say below!
