Paul Pogba may have found the net with the rebound to his own penalty, but the Frenchman made a mockery of himself through his run-up.
The Manchester United midfielder started the build-up to his strike from the edge of the box like any other penalty, but staggered his run so much that Usain Bolt would have crossed the finish line of a 100-metre sprint before Pogba made contact.
In total, the World Cup winner took 26 steps in a bid to psych out Jordan Pickford but failed miserably with England’s number one able to dive the right way and stop the initial effort.
Back in August, Pogba did convert a penalty against Leicester City in the third minute of the game when attempting a very lengthy stuttered run before smashing the ball into the top corner, but he must surely rethink his technique after Sunday’s blunder.
Premier League fans will want the 25-year-old to remember the moment should he step up to the spot against their respective team, and have been quick to the gun on Twitter with their thoughts…
Quicker and more decisive than Pogba’s pen yesterday though.

On a serious note pogba should stop bouncing like a kangaroo before a pen.

Watching highlights from Man Utd. My thoughts are: Never a pen. Pogba pen routine is ridiculous. And Pickford is very good at saving pens. And I will always hate Man Utd
