GIF: Paul Pogba Attempts Overhead Kick, Smashes Ezequiel Garay's Face

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterMay 1, 2014

With Juventus chasing the match late in their Europa League semi-final clash with Benfica, Paul Pogba attempted an overhead kick as a cross flew in. 

Unfortunately for him, he wasn't able to connect properly, and Benfica held on to eliminate Juve from the competition.

It was even more unfortunate for Benfica's Ezequiel Garay. As Pogba landed, one of his boots landed right on Garay's face.



Pogba attempted to help Garay afterward, while an irate Benfica manager Jorge Jesus pleaded for further punishment against the midfielder.
