Video: Paul Pogba Goes Wild During Man Utd Squad’s FIFA Tournament

We all know Paul Pogba can be an absolute beast on a real-life football pitch but it turns out the Manchester United midfielder is also a bit of a dab-hand in the virtual world too.

Pogba was joined by United colleagues Ashley Young, David de Gea and Tim Fosu-Mensah to square off for the rights to be called the Red Devils’ FIFA 17 champions.

Their opponents were club captain Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial, Daley Blind and Jesse Lingard.

And you probably won’t be surprised to hear Pogba and his make-shift team came out on top, but it was Ashley Young who was the hero – sort of.

Despite Pogba controlling the avatar on screen, it was Young’s virtual character who slammed the ball into the net – something the real-life Ashely Young hasn’t been able to do all season.

Pogba’s celebration might be a shade over the top, but we dread to think how Jesse Lingard would’ve celebrated.

We’d probably still be watching SnapChats about it now.
