Mourinho berated after Pogba stars for France

Manchester United's unsettled superstar Paul Pogba reminded Jose Mourinho of his talents on Tuesday evening as he turned on the style to score a free-kick, and set up a goal for Kylian Mbappe, as France beat Russian Federation 3-1.

The hosts of the upcoming FIFA World Cup were pushed to the backfoot in the first half of the game, courtesy some France's possession play and directness.

While France have a cast of brilliant attacking players ahead of the tournament in Russian Federation this summer, they will be praying this is not the only time Mbappe manages to channel his inner Zidane.

Pogba came to the fore again after the break, drawing a foul from Aleksandr Erokhin and duly curling home an eye-catching, long-range strike from the set-piece to double his team's advantage.

Pogba's second spell at Manchester United hasn't gone as well as he or the club had hoped.

Superstar Paul Pogba has been heavily linked with a move away from Manchester United, and manager Jose Mourinho has now reportedly decided what he will do with the Frenchman.

Jose Mourinho has not given up on Paul Pogba and has enlisted the help of France boss Didier Deschamps to get the best out of the midfielder, according to reports.

They play Austria and Turkey in friendlies before raising the curtain on the World Cup with their match against Saudi Arabia on June 14.

Ukraine took a 21st-minute lead when Yaroslav Rakitskiy's long-range shot took a deflection but Japan were level at halftime after a glancing header by Tomoaki Makino from a 41st- minute free kick.

Yahoo! also claim that Mourinho and Deschamps are both in agreement over the "need to press Pogba" to get his mind back on perfecting his game.
