Manchester United forward Anthony Martial earns recall to France squad

Martial, who has scored five goals in his last four premier league appearances comes in for the games against Uruguay and their Nations League match in the Netherlands on November 16. martial, 22, was not included in the France squad that won the 2018 world cup in Russian Federation. his last cap was against Russian Federation in march.

The Frenchman fell out of favour with Mourinho in the second half of last season and missed making the World Cup squad that eventually won France the tournament in the summer.

'I knew that for him to become a really top player, he needed to overcome some barriers that I put on the road for him.

"We're still talking about a young player who, I hope, is in the process of gaining a certain maturity", Deschamps told reporters.

And speaking on Martial's U-turn at the club, Mourinho has revealed he set a hard path for his player in order for him to realise his "phenomenal talent".

Anthony Martial can be "as good, if not better than Eden Hazard" after proving his "world-class" pedigree at Manchester United, says Paul Ince.

Martial will now hope to play a part in their future success, and United will also have new hope he can be a big part of theirs too.

Both Jose Mourinho and Anthony Martial seemed destined to leave the "Red Devils" just a few months ago, with the former losing fans on the Man Utd board and the latter frustrating fans in the stands.

'It's obvious by Jose Mourinho's choice [to start Martial in recent games] and what he's doing on the pitch'.

"United always finds the money when it is in the best interests of the club, and keeping Martial is a top priority at this current time".

His recent match-winning displays have seen French national team boss Didier Deschamps recall him for their upcoming games against the Netherlands (November 16) and Uruguay (November 20).
