Paul Pogba’s had a rough go of it this year, in Manchester. In the media.
But the one solid virtue was: “Well he is a World Cup winner”
So here he is again, with team France… back in that World Cup winner form.
Not something you see every day.
The dead-leg squib chip pitching-wedge pass to Antoine Griezmann, and a brilliant finish for the goal.
Looping a cheeky ball over the defense’s back line…
Without power, weight or distance, but just a little bit of English, from the Frenchman.
Pogba’s pass for Griezmann’s opening goal against Moldova tonight… exquisite.

Here’s another look at it, inside Zimbru Stadium in Chișinău:

Reminds you of a certain chip pass from one Eric Cantona, does it not?
1993. Man United vs. Tottenham.
What the man himself called, in Looking for Eric, his sweetest moment ever.
“It wasn’t a goal,” he says. “It was a pass.”
Bravo, Mr. Paul Pogba.
