(SOUNDBITE) (French) 26-YEAR-OLD MIDFIELDER, PAUL POGBA , SAYING: "It's true that it's not always easy to come back and and have new goals in your mind straight after winning the World Cup.

But we have to, it's our job.

We have to remain professional even if it takes time.

But now we returning straight into the competition, it's the qualifiers.

We want to win, we want to be the first in the pool." STORY: The French soccer team geared up for their upcoming match against Moldova for the Euro 2020 qualifiers with a press conference and family photo on Wednesday (March 20).

Due to take place on March 22 in Chisinau, Moldova, the match will kick off alongside two others as part of the Group H qualifiying matches.

26-year-old Paul Pogba, who plays for Manchester United, said he was still fully committed to football despite recently having a baby.

He will play on the same team as Presnel Kimpembe, a Paris-Saint-Germain player who he recently defeated in the Champions League after a handball by Kimpembe earned Manchester United a winning penalty.

22-year-old Kingsley Coman, who plays for Bayern Munich, said suffering a recent injury had made it difficult to come back to football but that he was making progress.

France finished runners-up to Portugal in the Euro 2016 final, losing 1-0, and will be aiming to replicate last year's victory in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
