Pogba has found the net just once for United this season and his previous goal for France came in the Euro 2016 quarter-final victory over Iceland, which was his first global strike in nearly two years.
The world-record Manchester United signing has struggled to find his best form for club and country since leaving Juventus for Old Trafford this summer, but one moment of brilliance in Amsterdam helped Les Bleus to the top of the Group A table.
Already without the sidelined Wesley Sneijder, their attacking options were reduced further when the injured Quincy Promes had to be substituted after just 15 minutes.
"He played the same as against Bulgaria [a 4-1 win on Friday], except here it had a goal".
The Faroes, once the whipping boys of Europe, have made an impressive start to Group B, and sit on four points after Friday's 2-0 win away in Latvia, one ahead of Portugal.
"I think we deserved a point".
Pogba broke the deadlock on the half-hour mark after Laurent Koscielny intercepted the ball on the halfway line and fed Dimitri Payet, who played a square pass to his fellow midfielder.Читайте также: Boxer Tyson Fury retires after cocaine allegations
Ten minutes later, the Netherlands looked to have a very strong case for a penalty that could have cancelled out Pogba's strike. "He should have put it on the spot".
Picking the ball up at the edge of the centre circle, the Frenchman, rather than drive for the Dutch box, instead brought the ball to within 30 yards and unleashed a thunderbolt of a strike that gave keeper, Maarten Stekelenburg, no chance, even though he got a hand to it.
The tone of the night was set inside 10 minutes, with Kevin Gameiro drawing an acrobatic save from goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.
Benteke's quick-fire goal eclipsed the previous best of 8.3 seconds achieved by San Marino's Davide Gualtieri in a World Cup qualifier against England in November 1993.
"We deserved a draw", Blind said.
