Florentin Pogba thrives in first starting opportunity

It took a few months in Atlanta before Florentin Pogba got his first start in the red, black and gold. But the man his teammates call “Flo” was patient –– and he was certainly ready.

“I was waiting for my first game,” he said through a translator after the match. “When the team is winning it’s difficult to change the team. We have to wait. Soccer is like that. When it’s your turn, you have to do well to give the coach and yourself confidence.”

He certainly gave his coach confidence in a performance that was one of the best on the pitch.
