Pogba, Meram solid in first starts with Atlanta United

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — Florentin Pogba and Justin Meram played well in their first starts for Atlanta United, according to manager Frank de Boer.

“I think Pogba played a fantastic game today,” de Boer said.

He put in a full shift against Vancouver in place of Miles Robinson, who had played every minute of every game this season until Wednesday.

Goalkeepr Brad Guzan said he was also impressed by Pogba’s ability to play out of the back, which is hard to replicate in training.

After a slow start in which he had trouble connecting passes with his teammates, Meram grew into the game.

Meram said the chemistry will develop as he continues to train, watch film and talk with his teammates about their tendencies and movements.
