Paul Pogba challenges Zlatan Ibrahimovic's high-kick prowess - with inevitable result

Paul Pogba has got himself embroiled in a contest he can't possibly hope to win after challenging Zlatan Ibrahimovic to a high-kick off.

It all began when the Swedish giant fully extended his hamstrings to execute an impressive overhead pass during Galaxy's game against Atlanta United.

Unperturbed by the athleticism on display, Pogba posted a video of his own effort on Instagram while simultaneously laying down the gauntlet to Ibrahimovic.

Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long before Ibra took notice and upped the ante.

Indeed, the Galaxy striker replied to Pogba's challenge by confronting his former Manchester United teammate with a photo demonstrating his full high-kicking prowess on his Instagram story.

Impressive stuff, no doubt. It shouldn't be humanly possible to get a foot that high off the ground.

Unfortunately, Pogba is probably going to have to dislocate something horribly in order to compete on that level.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
