World Cup winning star Pogba scores twice as Man United beat Young Boys 3-0 in Champions League opener





- Two goals from captain Paul Pogba and one from Anthony Martial sealed a 3-0 win for Man United against Young Boys

- The hosts were the better side in the first half of the game but were unable to handle red-hot Red Devils squad

- The Premier League side sit atop of Group H with three points and three goals ahead of their next game against Valencia at Old Trafford next month

Manchester United began their UEFA Champions League campaign in Group H, on a high note thrashing BSC Young Boys 3-0 on Wednesday, September 19, and picking up maximum points.

Young Boys did look the better side at the start of the encounter and tested United's number one shot-stopper David De Gea with a couple of long-range efforts, but to no avail.

United weathered the storm and showed sheer brilliance and raw tenacity in the fixture that was played on artificial turf - a turf United players were unaccustomed to playing on.
