Paul Pogba puts Dutch rival in his place with a brilliant performance - and an emphatic one liner

Man United fans can rest a little easier after last night's game between France and the Netherlands.
Paul Pogba's sluggish start to the season has been the subject of much media coverage since the French international became the world's most expensive player after his return to the Red Devils from Juventus.
After an impressive debut against Southampton where Pogba gave a dominant all-action performance, he struggled to impose himself in subsequent fixtures.
However, the international break seems to have come at the perfect time for the midfielder - unlike his opponent last night, Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum.
Pogba gave a Man of the Match display, scoring the game's only goal as he dominated his direct opponent, Kevin Strootman.
The Roma player is highly thought of but was no match for Pogba's pace and power.
The Frenchman seemed to regain his swagger after his top notch display, swatting Strootman's protestations about a heavy challenge away with a curt putdown, seeming to tell him to 'shut the 'f*** up'.
With Man United visiting Anfield to take on Liverpool under lights on Monday Night Football next week, Pogba will be hoping his newfound form carries over into the clash of the titans.
