Paul Pogba was seen fuming at his France team-mate, Benjamin Pavard, during their UEFA Nations League final win over Spain on Sunday night.
France manager Didier Deschamps was forced to try and calm the situation as Pogba became increasingly irate with the Bayern Munich defender.
Pogba had been heavily pressed on the edge of his own area with limited support from the team-mates around him which also included Jules Kounde.
He was ultimately able to draw a foul from the Spanish forward pressing him but quickly noticed Pavard running into position and let his feelings be known to the 25-year-old.
This was not the first time Pogba and Pavard have feuded on the pitch while representing their country following a similar incident at the Euros.
During their round of 16 exit to Switzerland in the summer, Pogba was reportedly told by Raphael Varane that Pavard had said he does not "defend enough".
This incensed Pogba, who confronted Pavard on the pitch, with Pavard allegedly insulting Pogba during their heated discussion.
However, on this occasion, fans were quick to jump to Pogba's defence on social media, with one fan tweeting: “Can't blame him, Pavard is awful.”
Was Paul Pogba right to be angry with Benjamin Pavard for his lack of support? Let us know in the comments section below.
Another supporter wrote: “Pavard is so poor defensively. He allows his marker to escape him easily.”
While one fan gave a scathing review of Pavard as they tweeted: “How does Pavard get minutes anyway? Seems to be a weird egg in the team and he's not a very good player either.”
A fourth fan also wrote: “Pavard has that look of someone who wakes up on a football pitch with no idea how he got there.”
Despite the altercation between Pogba and Pavard, France went on to come from behind to beat Spain and claim the second ever Nations League.
Mikel Oyarzabal gave Spain the lead in the 64th minute, only for Karim Benzema to pull France level just two minutes later.
PSG star Kylian Mbappe then clinched victory for France as he scored with just 10 minutes remaining to make them the first nation to win the World Cup, Euros and the Nations League.
