Paul Pogba has just scored a belter.
Unfortunately for Manchester United fans, he did it while playing for France. Yet if it’s a sign for things to come at Old Trafford, then it’s time to get excited.
The £89 million man gave Les Bleus the lead in their World Cup qualifier in the Netherlands with a screamer from more than 30 yards.
Netherlands ‘keeper Maarten Stekelenburg got a hand to the shot but couldn’t help it from creeping into the corner of his goal. The Everton man should have done better, but we prefer to suggest the force of Pogba’s effort meant he was helpless.

Pogba scores a banger
Pogba’s strike comes after he received criticism from France manager Didier Deschamps, who said the 23-year-old “can and must do better” after his performance in the 4-1 win against Bulgaria last Friday.
“I don't like evaluating one player individually,' Deschamps said to reporters, per the Daily Mail. “(Pogba) alternated between good things and less good things. Paul can and must do better.”
His goal against the Netherlands can certainly be described as doing “better”.
