A brilliant goal you won’t have seen: Paul Pogba (Manchester United XI) vs Fleetwood

This boy just gets better, and better, and better.

Throughout the summer, one of the biggest concerns for Manchester United fans has been how Paul Scholes can be replaced. Undoubtedly one of the greatest midfielders of his generation, the gaping hole Scholes’ retirement has left in the team is massive. That’s lead to the likes of Wesley Sneijder to be named as possible sensational captures.

Whether or not Sir Alex manages to pull off a top signing magic trick, perhaps Manchester United fans should start looking closer to home for a solution. Paul Pogba, at just 18-years-old, continues to look like one of the best talents to be brought through in their own youth system in years.

Last Thursday night he did it again in a friendly with Fleetwood that United won 2-nil.

With the match goalless after 58 minutes, Pogba stepped up with an absolute corker. With the face of a boy but the body of a beast, the teenager collected a nothing-pass 35-yards from goal, took one touch, and then slaughtered a thunderbolt into the far top corner.

Enjoy Paul Pogba’s ridiculous goal for Manchester United vs Fleetwood.


This is far from the first time Pogba has scored a golazo. His back-catalogue includes stunners against Portsmouth and Derby.
