Manchester United have three new UEFA Nations League winners. Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane, and Anthony Martial all lifted the trophy as France beat Spain 2-1 in the final.
Pogba was the only one to play 90 minutes in the final as he added a second international trophy to his collection. Former Nations League winner Bruno Fernandes was the first club teammate to congratulate him.
Fernandes’ Portugal won the Nations League with a victory over Netherlands in 2019. Along with Ronaldo, Fernandes won that trophy before he signed with United.
Fernandes and Pogba are close on and off the pitch and the quick message from the Portuguese star shows that. While Pogba can now head back to United with his international break over, Fernandes has another match to play.
Portugal have an World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg to play this week, before he can return to Carrington. Pogba and Fernandes will both aim to be starters when United face Leicester on Saturday.
