The football boots with which Paul Pogba effectively won the World Cup for France last year are to go under the hammer in Paris later this month, Christie’s said yesterday.

The auction house estimate they could go for up to €50 000.

The Manchester United midfielder, who scored France’s third goal in the 4-2 victory over Croatia, has donated them to a French charity which helps high school students from tough areas.

Pogba, who grew up on a deprived estate in the Paris suburbs, has also given the France shirt he wore during the team’s victory over Iceland in the Euro 2016 quarterfinal, in which he also scored.
