One of the best box-to-box midfielders of the current generation, a World Cup winner with France and three Serie A titles to his name, Paul Pogba is truly one in a million. His sheer power, control on the ball and range of passing make him truly outstanding in modern day football.
While some may argue that he’s an unfulfilled potential at Manchester United, the former Juventus man has definitely some amazing goals to his name.
5. Juventus v Napoli, 2013-14 Serie A
Pogba is an outstanding shooter from distance. Capable of both feet, the Frenchman scored a stunner against arch-rivals and title challengers Napoli when he scooped a poor (or maybe pre-planned) first touch and volleyed from 30 yards.
The goal flew in, thanks to Pogba’s inch-perfect precision and a clever eye for goal. It still stands out as one of Pogba’s best ever goals for the Old Lady.
4. Juventus v Napoli, 2013-14 Serie A
Okay, enough bragging about the right foot, let’s talk about a clinical finish off the left one now. Napoli again at the receiving end as Paul Pogba takes on a rebound from a Napoli defender and smashes it past the goalkeeper Ospina with a powerful left-footer.
The goal signaled Pogba’s and Juve’s intentions for the season under Antonio Conte – they were ruthless, dominating and would stop at nothing.
We can’t help but marvel at this stunning strike from Pogba from 30 yards out that swirled out and into the goalpost, much resembling Roberto Corlos’ freekick for Brazil.

The Frenchman was just finding his feet in Turin, amidst a horde of stars when he shone like a star amidst all the hype regarding his unworldly talents. A true cracker strike, this.
2. Manchester United v Fenerbahce, 2014-15 UEFA Europa League
United were leading 2-0 against Dutch outfit Fenerbahce at Old Trafford when Pogba, leading with the captain’s armband on the day scored a brilliant curler that stayed hit and found its place in the top corner.
Although, over the years, fans have come to expect long-rangers from Pogba, his goals still hold a very special place when fans consider the architecture and beauty of his strikes.
