Fassou Pogba memorably appeared in the stands for France’s draw with Switzerland during Euro 2016, with his other two sons Florentin and Mathias wearing shirts saying “Happy Father’s Day” in French.
He appeared weak but delighted to be in the company of his sons, who are Guinea internationals who play for Sparta Rotterdam and Saint-Etienne respectively, while watching Paul, who at the end of the match revealed the same shirt.
