Paul Pogba's 'genuinely outrageous' Euro 2020 moment after 'inconsistent' blast


Manchester United star Paul Pogba has wowed supporters with a remarkable piece of skill during France training.

Didier Deschamps’ side are preparing for their Euro 2020 last-16 showdown against Switzerland in Bucharest.

Pogba has been a key performer in the group stages, producing memorable moments in the games against Germany and Portugal.

The midfielder’s spellbinding pass to Lucas Hernandez forced Mats Hummels’ own goal in the win against Germany.

And his assist for Karim Benzema in the Portugal draw was one of the standout individual moments of the competition.

Pogba’s swashbuckling style is not restricted to the pitch and he is prone to showcasing his talents in training.

One clip has emerged online of Pogba bringing the ball down with his heel during a training session, despite the fact his back is facing the direction of the ball.

“Genuinely outrageous,” one fan reacted.

“He makes this type of stuff look so easy,” another added.

“The first view got me thinking Pogba had a bad control but wow that second view,” a United fan agreed.

Pogba has started in all three French group games and is likely to play an important role in the knockout stages.

The World Cup winner’s form at the Euros has reignited a familiar debate over why he appears more efficient for his country than under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer at United.

But Pogba’s ability to produce on both stages was also bizarrely questioned this week by former United defender and fellow countryman Mikael Silvestre.

Speaking to Ladbrokes, Silvestre said: “The problem with Paul Pogba is the consistency – or lack of.

“When he’s at the top of this game, his level is something else, but he finds it difficult to repeat that game after game.

“I look at it this way; he’s a world-class player, he’s got world-class attributes for sure. The question is, can he repeat it every three days? I’m not sure he can.

“He hasn’t done it for Man United, I’m not sure he can do it for France either.”

“I’m always happy to see him on the pitch for club or country, because he’s been unlucky with injuries.

The frustrating part is that we haven’t seen him reach his levels week-in, week-out.

“I don’t know whether it’s a psychological thing or a physical thing. I’m a Man United supporter and a France supporter, so I’m always hoping that whoever he represents, we see the best of him, because we saw against Germany just how much he can give to the team.”
