It was the Manchester United midfielder’s first international goal since he scored against Croatia in the 2018 World Cup final.
His effort looked to be the winner after putting Didier Deschamps’ men two goals up in the 75th minute.
But Switzerland pulled off a remarkable comeback to send the game into extra-time, before stunning the illustrious rivals in a shootout, with Kylian Mbappe missing the crucial penalty.
Pogba’s celebration proved to be a talking point on social media.
One fan tweeted: “Pogba just did 5 different dances in 1 celebration loool.”
Another quipped: “What a goal Pogba. Already know that Roy Keane is gonna LOVE that dance routine celebration.”
A third added: “Pogba doing our Nigeria dance after scoring that belter!!!”
Meanwhile one remarked: “Pogba just did the palliative dance. inject it in my veins.”

Pogba is facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford with the ex-Juventus ace having just one year left on his contract.
He has been linked with a switch to Spain to join Real Madrid in a possible swap deal for compatriot Raphael Varane.
SunSport understands that the Red Devils are keen to keep hold of the player, and are ready to hand him a new deal worth ￡400,000-a-week.
