It has certainly been a whirlwind of a week for Manchester United new boy Anthony Martial. The 19-year old finally got his dream move to Old Trafford on deadline day, before making his international debut for France against Portugal last night.
The £36million man was sat on the bench alongside his new Manchester United teammate Morgan Schneiderlin, before being summoned by Deschamps in the second half to make his full debut.
The striker came on and helped his nation secure a 1-0 victory over Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal thanks to a stunning free-kick from Mathieu Valbuena, and as you’d expect, Manchester United Twitter went into overdrive as their fans got to see their new man in action for the first time.
Congratulations to Anthony Martial on his senior France debut. #MUFC
