Ultimately, that's what this performance was about: the courage to try, and try again, and fail, and fail again, and ultimately fail better.

The Spurs fans holler and howl.

We're 15 seconds in, and Paul Pogba tries his first raking long ball of the evening: a graceful, cultured parabola of a pass from just outside the centre circle, looking for the run of Marcus Rashford down the right.

The ball curves off the outside of his boot, skims across the Wembley turf, and skids out of play, around 30 yards from his intended target.

About 20 minutes later, Pogba tries something similar: a little look, a short backlift, a long raking through ball, this time over the top looking for Jesse Lingard.

After all, when you're trying your luck on a hopeful long ball, the odds may be stacked against you.

To more hearty cheers from the home contingent, the pass is well overhit, and Hugo Lloris claims the ball with his usual hearty relish, like a kid who's just found a caterpillar in the garden and really, really wants to keep it.
