In the 47th minute of tonight’s all-important Europa League encounter between Manchester United and AC Milan, Paul Pogba inspired the Red Devils less than three minutes after entering the pitch.
Pogba was a halftime substitute for United, replacing Marcus Rashford after the star’s injury ‘discomfort’ become very noticeable.
Danger was sparked when Bruno Fernandes pinged a ball over to Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right side of the box, the full-back picked out Dan James, who saw a shot at goal blocked.
The ball bundled away to the far post, were Fred showed tenacity to barge off Pierre Kalulu, before winning the ball back after an audacious back-heel attempt.
Pogba eventually collected the ball just a couple of yards out, dummying Franck Kessie and United target Gianluigi Donnarumma with a lovely fake shot, before he tucked the ball into the roof of the net.
