FRA 2-1 ESP: 3 Things Noticed About Pogba & Varane That They Need To Learn To Become Better Players

The UEFA Nations League was in action today as Spain and France clashed in the finals of the competition at the San Siro Stadium.

Didier Deschamp's France cruised to a narrow 2-1 win against a strong Spain team to win their first-ever UEFA Nations League title at the San Siro Stadium. Even though Spain was the dominant team, France was very decisive in attack and deserved to win the game.

Manchester United duo Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane were in action for France tonight as they represented their country in the UEFA Nations League finals. Manchester United fans watched Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane game against Spain tonight and noticed a lot of things in his game that they need to learn.

1. Paul Pogba needs to influence the game and help the team to dominate possession against stronger opposition:

Paul Pogba used to be one of the best midfielders in the world during his time at Juventus in the Italian Serie A. Fans has been waiting to see the best of Paul Pogba since his big-money move to Manchester United in 2016, unfortunately, the Frenchman hasn't been able to live up to expectation.

Paul Pogba was in action today for the France National team and was totally outran and outclassed by a 17-year-old Pablo Gavira in the midfield battle. Paul Pogba was unable to dominate the midfield for France as the Led Blues lost the midfield battle to Spain.

As a box-to-box midfielder, Pogba lacks the ability to dominate the midfield in big matches as can be seen in France and Manchester United games against stronger opposition. Going forward, Paul Pogba should give more to the team and help the team to dominate possession against stronger opposition.

Controlling the midfield is the duty of a midfielder and Paul Pogba must improve in this area if he wants to become a legend for France and Manchester United.

2. Paul Pogba should offer more in attack for his team:

Paul Pogba used to be a decisive and prolific goal scorer during his time with Juventus but has not been scoring frequently for Manchester United and France. Even though Paul Pogba's is to create goal-scoring chances and not to score goals, he should also improve his performance and help out the team with goal scoring.

Paul Pogba must replicate his prolific goal scoring form at Juventus for Manchester United and France national team if he wants to go down in history as one of the finest midfielders to ever play football.

3. Raphael Varane should be more decisive and show leadership qualities in matches:

Raphael Varane is a professional footballer who has played alongside legendary stars like Iker Casillas, Xabia Alonso and Sergio Ramos. Raphael Varane should have learnt one or two things from these great footballers on how to become not just a good defender but a leader on the pitch. You must not be a captain to display leadership qualities on the pitch but must show it with your commanding performance in matches.

Raphael Varane didn't show much leadership qualities in today's UEFA Nations League final against Spain and unfortunately sustained an injury before in the first half of the game.
