Paul Pogba: Man Utd midfielder takes 26-step penalty against Everton

Adjust Comment Print

Pogba took 10 full seconds and 28 steps to arrive at the penalty spot against Everton on Sunday, only to see his shot parried by Jordan Pickford.

The Frenchman took 26 steps before kicking the ball, and he soon trended on Twitter with the hashtag '#ThingsYouCanDoDuringPogbasPenaltyRunUp'.

"Some teams they have three chances and score three goals".

"But he's a good player, a good boy, and I think the best way to do it is to just keep working and the moment will arrive". I think the goalkeepers now know his run-up and they don't move, they are waiting until the last second for his decision.

"He wants to take them". The World Cup victor did his trademark stutter-run to the ball on the spot, but Pickford had done his homework. I admire players who have the courage to take them.

Lukaku was dropped for the first time in his United career, with Fred's inclusion the sole change from the defeat by Juventus, as Marco Silva fielded the same Everton XI who beat Crystal Palace last weekend. We want to win, of course, but we want to win in a good way, we want to win with creative football.

Anthony Martial in particular seemed to enjoy more freedom without the presence of Lukaku with Marcus Rashford given the chance to play through the middle on this occasion.

LOS ANGELES - All season, the Los Angeles Dodgers have danced along the edge of a great precipice. The game began in 78-degree heat - 31 degrees warmer than at Fenway Park for the first two games.

"When he did his run-up I knew where he was going to go and I saved it, but unfortunately it went back out", Pickford told Everton's club website.

"I think he coped well with his development process". When the game is balanced in the first 20-25 minutes, the penalty starts to put them ahead in the match and more comfortable.

"Today, I was lucky, but the most important thing is that the ball went in and I scored a goal". I know referees can make mistakes and it is clear, it was no penalty.

Someone on social media pointed out that Pogba's little trot from start to finish took more time than Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt takes to run 100m.

Sell Lukaku. We don't need him.

Sigurdsson and Richarlison then linked well to send Bernard clean through on goal and, after managing to round De Gea, the Brazilian appeared poised to convert into the open net only to hit the side-netting from a tight angle.
