Pogba delivers as France beat World Cup hosts Russian Federation

Russia vs France MUTV Live stream

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.

Pogba doubled the advantage four minutes after the break with a curler into the bottom corner past the diving Andrei Lunev.

Poor showings in the losses to Newcastle United and Tottenham led to Mourinho hauling the midfielder off while he dropped Pogba for the FA Cup victory over Brighton.

With CSKA and Spartak defenders Viktor Vasin and Georgi Dzhikiya out with injuries as well as Zenit's forward Alexander Kokorin, Russia will likely once again depend on Fyodor Smolov up front.

Smolov gave Russian Federation hope, beating Lloris after meeting a cross from Igor Smolnikov.

The goals for France were scored by Kylian Mbappe (40th and 83rd minutes) and Paul Pogba (49th minute). In the first half, we gave away the ball a bit stupidly.

Twitter to ban cryptocurrency ads
Social-media platforms are keeping cryptos away as regulators cast an increasingly wary eye on the sector globally. In a statement, the social networking site said it was committed to ensuring the safety of the community.

While Pogba must bear some responsibility for his own performances, United are rarely set up in a manner that would allow him to shine.

Pogba, back in the starting line-up, threaded a perfectly-weighted pass through for Mbappe, who checked to lose his marker and buried a shot inside Lunev's near post.

Worryingly for Russian Federation, it's now been five games since its last victory.

The Japanese used Standard Liege's stadium as their base for two warm-up games having snatched a last-gasp draw with Mali on Friday.

Playing in black armbands to mourn the 64 people killed in a fire Sunday in the Siberian city of Kemerovo, Russia continued to struggle ahead of the World Cup.
