Paul Pogba thanks Neymar for the Manchester United goal

Paul Pogba thanks Neymar for the Manchester United goal

Supporters of Manchester United with long memories will have recognized the run of Paul Pogba against Leicester Friday night. In March 2011, the United Academy team was defeated 2-0 in the FA Youth Cup quarter-finals with Liverpool at Anfield, when they scored a penalty in front of the Kop. Pogba, on the verge of turning 18, intensified, casually mixed to the ball and pretended to convert the spotkick. Only the referee scored the goal and made a second yellow card to Pogba, who was sent off. Larnell Cole entered the second half and Ravel Morrison doubled a decisive comeback. The international national team of France Pogba opted for the technique in international service also in the Under 20 World Cup in 2013. Pogba, wearing the armband, sent the goalkeeper of Uruguay the wrong way, with France that has won the last game 4-1 three years before Pogba conquered the World Cup with the senior team. Pogba studied Neymar's stop-start technique in front of Liverpool's seven and a half years ago and, as was his confidence, he was ready to put it into practice in front of 12,000 people, including Sir Alex Ferguson. Alexis Sanchez requested to conquer the Manchester United spot on Friday, but scored only three of his eight penalties in his career, while Pogba's record is four out of five, excluding penalties. Nothing new on the run of Paul Pogba last night.

"Of course, we have a second or third chance in the case [the player is] not sure or some reason does not want to take. "But he was ready and obviously he trained a lot of penalties during the World Cup because it's something, in a competition like that, every player trains a lot and is very confident".[Kasper] Schmeichel is very good on penalties but no chance. The race[-up] it does not matter, what matters is quality and intensity and one could feel the direction was impossible for Schmeichel. Schmeichel goes to the same side and goes in the same corner but without wings to get there, only with wings. So it's a fantastic penalty.
