There’s very little doubt that Anthony Martial would walk into most teams in world football.

Unfortunately for him, he’s at a club where he faces stiff competition for a regular starting place.

The Frenchman has been rotated with Marcus Rashford at Manchester United this season and rarely completes 90 minutes.

However, on Tuesday night, the 21-year-old showed exactly what happens when he plays an entire match - he runs riot.

That occurred during France’s friendly against Germany, an entertaining match which ended 2-2.

Watch: Martial's brilliant assist

By now, you’ve probably already seen the winger’s beautiful assist for Alexandre Lacazette. If not, take a look:

That assist was so good that the official German Twitter account described Martial as going "full FIFA."

But that was far from Martial’s only involvement against the world champions.

That’s because he caused all sorts of problems for Germany’s defence and looked a totally different player to what we’ve seen at times for United this campaign.

Watch: Martial's individual highlights

Just take a look at his individual highlights and you’ll what incredible potential he has:

Not bad!

Despite not being a regular starter, Martial has still notched six goals this season for the Red Devils - just two short of his tally for last campaign.

He recently scored the winner shortly after coming on against Spurs during an important 1-0 victory. And after the match, Jose Mourinho explained the advantage he has over Rashford.


Mourinho on Martial v Rashford

"Same position as Marcus, but he's more comfortable than Marcus dropping in between the lines," Mourinho said. "Having the ball and have the ball and not just try to attack space. And I was telling him to do that.

"But, at the same time, to play from Lukaku against three very good central defenders but against three central defenders who had a hard match against Lukaku and Rashford.

"So he comes, and okay, probably a lucky shot but the movement is good, the desire is good and the goal is the goal that gets us two more points than the 0-0."
