In the 32nd minute of France’s Nations League win against Portugal, Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba thwarted teammate Bruno Fernandes with a brilliant sliding tackle.
Fernandes charged down to the byline before attempting a cross, the playmaker’s attempts were shut down by a brilliant challenge by Pogba.
The Frenchman came sliding in and stopped the ball from getting into the box with a firm but completely fair challenge on his pal. Fernandes then helped Pogba up.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will absolutely love to see this from Pogba, with the midfielder enduring a difficult start to the season and coming off the back of a lacklustre display in France’s defeat to Finland.
