Anthony Martial produces fine performance against Holland

Published 5 Comments

Anthony Martial has enjoyed a wonderful debut season on English soil and, unsurprisingly, he is now a key man for his national side. 

France, of course, will be hosting this summer's European Championships and will be one of the favourites to win the competition. 

With the likes of Martial, Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and co. plying their trade for the national side, they will take some stopping.

On Friday evening, they secured an impressive 3-2 victory over the Netherlands, who missed out on qualifying for Euro 2016. 

Goals from Griezmann, Olivier Giroud and Blaise Matuidi handed Didier Deschamps' side the win on a night when Amsterdam remembered Johan Cruyff, who sadly passed away on Thursday.

Classy Martial 

The performance of youngster Martial was one that Manchester United supporters would have been pleased with. 

A constant threat throughout proceedings, the dynamic forward caused havoc against the Dutch all night long. 


In fact, as you can see in the video below, Martial attempted to score a fine solo goal: taking the ball in his own half, the youngster didn't let anyone get close to him until he unleashed a shot which didn't quite match his run. 

Martial failed to strike on that occasion, but he did play an integral role for his country's winning goal. Linking up with Matuidi, Martial played a fine ball through to his teammate, who slotted home accurately. 

All in all, it was another impressive game from Martial, who will be determined to prove his credentials this summer. 

How many goals do you think Martial will score at Euro 2016? Have your say below!
