Perhaps fittingly on Super Bowl Sunday, Paul Pogba turned quarterback and dropped a dime in the bucket.

The Manchester United wizard took advantage of a very poor pass by Leicester City’s Ricardo Pereira to set up Marcus Rashford for a ninth minute goal at the King Power Stadium.

Pogba collects the wayward pass and his first touch takes an awkward turn. But the Frenchman still manages to loft a spinning pass over the top of the Leicester defense.

Rashford collects it in stride and clinically lashes past Kasper Schmeichel.

Considering he missed a very good chance moments earlier, it’s no surprise he finished this one. And what a pass!
