Paul Pogba is having himself a day with the French national team.

Struggling at Manchester United, Pogba scored his first goal of 2018 with a curling free kick in France’s friendly against Russia to make it 2-0.

He also had an assist on the first goal for France as he played in Kylian Mbappe to score.

Pogba, 25, has been left out of the team in recent weeks by Jose Mourinho and the French international has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer with Real Madrid reportedly interested amid a spat between Pogba and Mourinho.

Pogba scoring a beauty and assisting on national team duty will hopefully boost his confidence ahead of his return to United for the crucial run in.

United have a nine-point lead over fifth-place Chelsea in the race for the top four and are also in the FA Cup semifinals.
