Watch: Paul Pogba embarrasses Kevin De Bruyne with great footwork
Manchester United‘s Paul Pogba got the better of Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne during France’s UEFA Nations League semi-final against Belgium.
Pogba has enjoyed a brilliant start to the 2021-22 season at club level, registering seven assists in seven Premier League appearances.
The midfielder is clearly full of confidence and decided to showcase his skills against Belgium, skipping past De Bruyne on the edge of his own penalty area.
Belgium were leading 2-0 at half-time but second-half goals from Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe and Theo Hernandez sent France to the final.
The game was also played at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, where Pogba spent four years during his time at Juventus.
“I like Turin,” Pogba told Sport Mediaset after the game. “I always speak with former Juve team-mates like [Paulo] Dybala. I’m in Manchester now, I’m under contract until June then let’s see. I want to complete this season at the best level, then we will see.”
