In the 47th minute of tonight’s all-important Europa League fixture between Manchester United and AC Milan, Paul Pogba inspired the Red Devils less than three minutes after entering the pitch.
Pogba was a half-time substitute for United, replacing Marcus Rashford after the discomfort from the star’s injury became very noticeable.
The danger was triggered when Bruno Fernandes sent a ball to Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right side of the box, the full-back chose Dan James, who saw a shot on goal blocked.
The ball was packed to the far post, where Fred showed tenacity to ward off Pierre Kalulu, before recovering the ball after a daring attempt at a back heel.
Pogba finally recovered the ball a few meters away, beating Franck Kessie and United, target Gianluigi Donnarumma, with a nice fake shot, before hitting it into the roof of the net.
