The Atletico Madrid striker, who brought out his Drake-inspired move during Euro 2016, was speaking after France defeated Sweden 2-1 in their most recent World Cup qualifier – a game which saw Pogba find the net.

Despite not scoring himself, Griezmann was asked by Goal who had the better celebration: ‘You have to ask some other folk but I’m going to say mine,’ the striker said with a wry smile.

‘I often receive photos and videos on my social networks and it makes me laugh. My celebration is even in FIFA! It’s a dream for me and I hope that kids can see it as often as possible,’ he added.

Despite insisting that his on-field moves are superior to Pogba’s, Griezmann conceded that he could not compete with the Manchester United midfielder when it comes to the dancefloor.

‘Paul dances a lot more than me and is a lot better. But from time to time I like to dance and sing in my car, like everyone,’ he added.
