As well as striking the scrappy opener, the energetic Pogba popped up all over the pitch, forming an effective midfield trident with Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera, outmuscling and nullifying the inexperienced Dutch side. The Red Devils qualifying for Pot 2 will help them immensely when it comes to the group-stage draw next season, and they could even have realistic ambitions of winning their group depending on which Pot 1 club they're drawn with.

Louis Cardinals.
