Paul Pogba

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba dedicated his free-kick in France’s 3-1 win over Russia to his late father.

Pogba, whose form at Old Trafford has faced the severe scrutiny of late, scored and assisted a goal in an international match for the first time, with Kylian Mbappe scoring twice at Krestovsky Stadium. However the 24-year-old dedicated his goal to his father who died in May 2017 and would have turn 80 on Tuesday.

Following the goal, the midfielder lifted his T-shirt to reveal a message in French: ‘Joyeux anniversaire Papa, Allah y Rahmou’

“Happy birthday Dad, merci for watching over me and my brothers @equipedefrance great win team,” Pogba wrote on Twitter.

The France international has scored four goals and provided ten assists this season.
