VIDEO: Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba Combine to Almost Score Incredible Rabona/Overhead Kick Combo

Ryan Jones

​Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba combined a pass and shot movement which would have earned them goal of the century...if only the ball had found the back of the net. 

Pogba has come under a lot of criticism this season with fans demanding he justify the record £89.3m that United paid for him in the summer, and his performance in the Europa League may have helped to satisfy their expectations. 

During the Red Devils' 2-1 win over Anderlecht in the quarter-final on Thursday, not only did Pogba pick out a sublime pass to Rashford which lead to United first goal, but the pair linked up again in injury time to create one of the greatest attempts on goal you will ever see. 

In a demonstration of both skill and class Rashford burst down the right wing before picking out his midfield teammate in the box with an exquisite rabona cross. 

That might've been enough on its own, but Pogba's connection was spectacular too - twisting his body to meet the ball with a spectacular overhead kick which was, unfortunately, blocked by a defender. 

While it was disappointing that the shot didn't go, in it was still an incredible feat of skill from the pair and whether you love or hate Pogba - when watching the replay for the first time it's hard not to feel a touch of visceral excitement at the raw quality on display.

The win saw Jose Mourinho's men move into the semi-finals of the Europa League, where they will now face Celta Virgo away for the first leg on the 4th May.
