Bruno Fernandes sends a warning to Manchester United teammate Paul Pogba ahead of Euro showdown
Both players kicked off their campaign last night for their respective nations. While Fernandes’ Portugal left it late to beat Hungary, Pogba played a starring role that saw France defeat Germany. This has given both teams a major boost in their efforts to qualify for the quarter-finals.
The stage is set for the defending European Champions to take on the defending World Champions in what could prove to be a decisive group F fixture next week. For United fans, it serves a special treat having Fernandes go up against Pogba.
Fernandes is looking forward to it and fired a message to Pogba on Instagram yesterday night. He hinted that the Frenchman will find the going tougher when he faces Portugal.
For now, Portugal’s attention will be on Germany who they will face this Saturday. With the Germans needing a win to stay alive in the competition, Fernandes and co are in for a difficult night. France meanwhile takes on minnows Hungary.
A loss for Portugal will increase the stakes for the showdown against France. While we don’t like to play favourites, it is fair to say that international competitions throw up their own dramatic moments.
Both Fernandes and Pogba were amongst United’s best players this past season. While the former led the club in both goals and assists, the latter scored a number of key goals that saw us briefly go top of the Premier League.
It is fair to say that a strong summer could see them return to Old Trafford in the best mindset. After another trophyless campaign, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need his best players to step up next season.

It has so far been an excellent Euros for United stars. Victor Lindelof and Paul Pogba picked up the man of the match awards while Fernandes also played a key role in Portugal’s win. Whether any of them will go all the way remains to be seen.
