Paul Pogba racially abused by fans in World Cup semi-final stadium

Paul Pogba's skills

Manchester United have reportedly decided not to sell Paul Pogba this summer, with manager Jose Mourinho devising a plan to bring out the best in him next season.

The likes of Scott McTominay and Marouane Fellaini have been preferred by the Red Devils boss.

Kylian Mbappe's double dealt hosts Russia's World Cup preparations another blow as France claimed a 3-1 friendly win in St Petersburg.

From there, he was able to slide an inch-perfect pass to Kylian Mbappe to score the opening goal of the game shortly before half-time.

French players celebrate Pogba's goal.

Again dribbling past the hapless Neustaedter, the Paris Saint-Germain forward knocked the ball through goalkeeper Lunyov's legs.

But he was recalled for this match, along with United teammate Anthony Martial.

On 68 minutes, the hosts got one back, via Fedor Smolov's close-range effort.

Russian Federation just went down to Brazil 3-0 last Friday, and with an attack spearheaded by the threesome of Antoine Griezman, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba, the defense will be once again challenged to the extreme.

In the least surprising but most disappointing I have to write today the French sports minister has called on Federation Internationale de Football Association to act after alleged racism towards France's black players during the game against Russia on Tuesday night.

Then, soon after the break, Pogba curled home a handsome free-kick from all of 30 yards.

Oleksandr Karavaev ghosted into the penalty area to thump home a 69th-minute victor after a strong run down the left by Yevhen Konoplyanka to seal victory for Ukraine, who missed out on qualifying for this year's World Cup in neighbouring Russian Federation.
