Paul Labile Pogba (born 15 March 1993) is a French professional footballer who plays for Italian club Juventus in Serie A. He operates primarily as a central midfielder and is comfortable at playing both in attack and defence.
After his contract expired with Manchester United (He had refused to renew his contract due to lack of playing time), he signed with Juventus.
If only Manchester United knew what they had let slip from their grasp. He would have been invaluable in the heart of today’s Manchester United’s midfield.
A strong player, midfield dynamo; scoring goals upfront, and tracking back to deny opponents a chance to score.
If he continues this way, he might rise up to be one of the greatest players in the world.
On 22 March 2013, Pogba made his debut for the French senior team in a 2014 World Cup qualifier against Georgia. He played the full 90 minutes in a 3–1 win. Pogba then earned his second cap four days later in another 2014 World Cup qualifier against Spain. Pogba started this match against the world champions, but picked up a yellow card in the 76th minute for unsporting behaviour, before then being sent off two minutes later for a second bookable offence.
He scored his first international goal against Belarus on 10 September 2013, once again during a 2014 World Cup qualifier.
On 6 June 2014, Pogba was named in France’s squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. On 15 June, he started in central midfield in the team’s first World Cup fixture – a 3–0 defeat of Honduras – suffering a foul from Wilson Palacios which led to a red card for the Honduran and a penalty kick, which was converted by Karim Benzema to give France the lead. He appeared as a substitute in the team’s second match, assisting a goal for Benzema in a 5–2 victory of Switzerland. In the round of 16, Pogba scored a 79th minute opening goal and was named man of the match by FIFA as Les Bleus defeated Nigeria 2–0 in Brasília.
