France were given a bit of a scare during their World Cup qualifier against Sweden on Friday night.
Both teams started the evening joint top of Group A on seven points and given only one nation are guaranteed to qualify, there was plenty riding on this Stade De France encounter.
So when the hosts fell behind to an Emil Forsberg free-kick early on in the second half, France boss Didier Deschamps needed all of his big characters to step up.
And they don't come much bigger than Paul Pogba.
With the French staring at the possibility of a shock home defeat, the Manchester United star was the man to get the favourites back in the game just three minutes later.
Pogba grabbed the headlines last Sunday for his stunning volley against Swansea and it is fair to say this one wasn't quite of the same ilk.
The tall midfielder used his height to meet Dimitri Payet's free-kick with a deft header, as you can see below, although he probably didn't know too much about it.
Raphael Varane's late run in front of Pogba as the ball came in meant he was somewhat unsighted as he threw his head towards the cross.
But it doesn't matter how they go in and Man United fans certainly won't mind their record signing's confidence getting another boost.
France restored their superiority after Pogba's goal and Payet added a second just after the hour mark.
Antoine Griezmann, who might have been just offside when a cross from the right came in, jumped to challenge for the ball and caused the goalkeeper to fumble his catch. Payet then had the simple task of poking home.
That proved to be enough for Deschamps and co. to secure the three points and give themselves some breathing space at the top of Group A.
