Watch: Paul Pogba's brilliant car park celebration after France win

Published Add your comment

Paul Pogba quietened a lot of his critics on Monday night as he produced a stunning 35-yard strike to give France the win in a crunch World Cup qualifying match against the Netherlands.

The world's most expensive player has taken criticism for his performances for both club and country so far this season, so last night's game-winner will likely have lifted some of the pressure on his shoulders.

Indeed, judging by the way he celebrated with friends in the car park of the Amsterdam Arena, he was enjoying the moment as much as possible. Scroll down to see the Manchester United star's typically flamboyant celebration.

As well as being known as one of the finest midfielders in the world, Pogba has also made something of a name for himself with his dance moves over the past few months.

And the 23-year-old didn't shy away from bringing out the 'Pogdance' as he prepared to leave the scene of arguably his best performance of the season so far.

You can't imagine any of his United teammates celebrating in the same way should they score the winner for England tonight during their qualifying game against Slovenia. Well, except maybe Jesse Lingard - Pogba's unofficial dab partner at Old Trafford.

Pogba was clearly in a happy mood on Monday night and you can't blame him. His strike in the 30th minute against the Netherlands was a thing of beauty and, more importantly, helped France secure their position at the top of Group A.

Now, having proved his importance for his nation, United fans will be hoping the Frenchman takes his positive attitude into the Premier League over the next few weeks.

Finding form

With the Red Devils facing a potentially season-defining fixture against long-time rivals Liverpool this weekend, Pogba will be expected to play a key role if Jose Mourinho's side are to get a result.

However, judging by his club manager's recent words, the former Juventus star would still likely have been dancing his way to next Monday's fixture regardless of his recent performances.

That's after Mourinho described Pogba as "the happiest guy" he knows in football and a person who truly loves life. Judging by his post-game dance with friends, that seems fairly accurate.

If the £89 million man can find a way to score the winner at Anfield in six days, he might just have a few thousand more people dancing with him after the game.
