Manchester United points of interest
The first fixture will see two Manchester United players go head-to-head for a place in the next round. Both Paul Pogba and Marcos Rojo will be likely starters for France and Argentina, respectively. A lot of responsibility will be on Pogba’s shoulders to get this France team through to the next round, while Rojo will mostly just have to be competent and pray that Messi does a madness.
In the later match, we will all obviously be hoping for the worst for the vile Luis Suarez.
