And former Manchester United star Pogba, known for his own flamboyant trims, joked that American McKennie was actually supporting another country with the same colours.
McKennie appeared alongside Pogba on the Frenchman’s Instagram story, with the 29-year-old wrapping his arm around the shoulder of his team-mate.
He then joked: “My guy supporting France,” with the pair sharing a laugh after the comments.
McKennie put on a strong showing at the World Cup alongside midfield partner Tyler Adams, with the latter being linked with a move to Man Utd after his exploits.
The 24-year-old helped his country to progress from a tough group containing England, Iran and Wales.
However, they fell at the Last 16 hurdle as their high-octane style was rendered dull by Louis van Gaal’s pragmatic Dutch approach.
Pogba has been welcoming back his team-mates in Turin after missing out on the World Cup through injury.
Despite initial hope he would not require surgery on top of his nation’s title defence, Pogba eventually opted to undergo surgery on a thigh injury.

With his recovery seemingly going well, he was then ruled out of the World Cup for sure at the end of October after experiencing a setback.
However, despite the absence of Pogba and N’Golo Kante, who marshalled their 2018 campaign, France have still managed to make it all the way to the final – the first nation to do so since Brazil in 2002.
The partnership of Aurelien Tchouameni and Adrien Rabiot (Youssouf Fofana in the semi-final) has worked wonders and gives France the chance to become the first nation to successfully defend the World Cup since the Samba Boys in 1962.
But they will face an Argentina side which have been getting better and better with every game, not to mention Lionel Messi who is having his best ever World Cup.
Furthermore, Les Bleus have been ravaged in their preparation as virus and injury have swept through the squad, with FIVE stars missing training earlier today.
