Paul Pogba has just made a costly mistake on the brink of halftime in Manchester United’s clash against West Ham.
After David Moyes’ Hammers played a clever short free-kick to line up a thunderous shot from Declan Rice, Pogba stopped himself from taking the shot to the face by blocking it with his hands.
The superstar was left red-faced after the incident and after a surprisingly lengthy VAR review, the London outfit were rightfully awarded a spot-kick.
In-form Michail Antonio stepped up and sent David de Gea the wrong way with a lovely slotted penalty.
Take a look at the incident and Antonio’s well-take spot-kick below:
