POGBA’S GOAL, FIRST AMONG LIST OF JUSTIFICATIONS

After a season of battling with cross bars more than opposition goalies, Paul Labile Pogba on Wednesday scored United’s first goal on route to a 2-0 win over Ajax.


It does not matter if a huge deflection played part in it. The French midfielder had a chance to take a shot, took it and had the ball land at the back of the net.

Apart from playing a huge part in a evening that saw the Red Devils win the only trophy left out of the samples the European and English football had to offer, the French man got a huge relief and bought some time off the ever growingcynical tongue-in-cheek references to his “Most Expensive Player in the World” status.

Brazil will undoubtedly be favourites for the upcoming Copa America. A victory in this tournament will go a long way towards not only cementing Brazil’s position in South America, but also across the world. The fame of the national team has reduced somewhat after their failure to lift yet another World Cup title. Brazil have not won the World Cup since the 2002 success in Asia. Brazil still have two more friendlies before the start of the Copa America. Read more »
