Pogba Dedicates France Goal To Late Father

Paul Pogba dedicated his stunning goal in France’s 3-1 win over World Cup hosts Russia to his late father.

The Manchester United midfielder’s dad passed away in May 2017, and would have turned 80 on Tuesday.

Following his goal, Pogba lifted up his jersey to reveal a message in French that translates as “Happy Birthday, Dad. May Allah have mercy on him”.

He later added on Twitter: “Happy birthday Dad, merci for watching over me and my brothers @equipedefrance great win team!”
