Manchester United fans were absolutely delighted with Paul Pogba’s performance for France vs Argentina in the round of 16 stage of the World Cup.
The European nation managed to eventually win the crazily back and forth clash 4-3 in one of the best matches of the competition so far.
The United star was in fine form as well, proving to be in the centre of everything that went well for France and was only bettered by Kylian Mbappe’s brace stealing the limelight.
Pogba will now compete in the quarter finals of the World Cup and could come up against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal should they beat Uruguay later today.
The Red Devils’ fanbase though have been keenly watching their stars perform throughout the tournament and are clearly impressed with how the Frenchman got on.
Drogba mentioning Paul Pogba’s performance before anything else.
Was brilliant today, especially defensively.

Paul Pogba played very well against Argentina on football’s biggest stage but no one will say anything because his name is Paul Pogba.

There’s no doubt supporters will be hoping Paul can continue his good performances from the World Cup and carry it into next season under Jose Mourinho.
It will be the pair’s third season at Manchester United and there’s certainly pressure on them both to deliver in their own specific ways.
Pogba will hopefully be given more freedom to shine with the arrival of Fred who should partner him and Nemanja Matic in a three man midfield.
