Football fans left stunned by Paul Pogba’s scandalous France assist

They don’t get much better than that

While we all know he’s got it in his locker, social media couldn’t quite believe just how outrageous Paul Pogba’s assist for France against Moldova was.

Pogba has been playing like a man possessed since Jose Mourinho’s sacking at Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has revived the player’s form since taking over at Old Trafford.

Under the Norwegian Pogba has scored nine and assisted seven in 17 appearances.

That’s a pretty impressive tally but he’s not only improving in at club level.

The player jetted off to join up with the France squad this week for their games against Moldova and Iceland.

Safe to say, he hasn’t got his international fixtures off to a bad start after providing a sublime assist for teammate Antoine Griezmann.

Incredible footballing vision

France kicked off their Euro 2022 campaign with a visit to Moldova on Friday evening.

The World Champions were always expected to dominate proceedings and that was exactly what happened from the word go.

Both Olivier Giroud and Raphaël Varane got on the scoresheet, though it was Antoine Griezmann’s goal and Paul Pogba’s assist that will grab the headlines.

That is because the pair completed a sublime one-two over the Moldova defence to open the scoring.

Griezmann played the ball inside to Pogba before making a run in behind the opposition defence, with Pogba floating a perfectly weighted ball over the top.

After a glance at the goalkeeper, Griezmann volleyed the ball into the roof of the net with the Moldova shot-stopper stood stunned.

Everything from the layoff to the finishing touches on the volley was simply glorious.

Now, social media has been gushing over Pogba and Griezmann’s link-up.

While Griezmann’s volley did get some love, most of the chatter was about Pogba’s sublime assist.
