Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has heaped praise on match-winner Marcus Rashford — and revealed the striker knew he would score his free-kick.
United looked to be heading for a goalless draw in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final at Celta Vigo on Thursday night until Rashford came to the rescue.

The 19-year-old Forward stepped up to curl his second-half free-kick into the back of the net and score a crucial away goal for Jose Mourinho‘s silverware-chasing side.
And Pogba revealed Rashford told him he felt confident about scoring before stepping up to net the stunner.
Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Pogba said: ‘On the pitch, we don’t look at the age. He’s been doing great this season and we trust him.
‘When he took that free-kick, he told me he was going to score and he put it in so that’s the most important thing.
