Anthony Martial assists Olivier Giroud for France goal

Football News

Despite hogging the headlines in terms of goals since joining Manchester United, talented forward Anthony Martial has turned provider on the international scene for France over the last week. 

The teenager, who has been in wonderful form since arriving on English soil, is full of confidence right now. He assisted Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema in France's 4-0 win over Armenia last week and he was at it again last night. 

In just the fourth minute of proceedings against Denmark, Martial once again delivered as he flew down the left-hand side of the pitch to play a fine ball through to Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud, who converted past Kasper Schmeichel.

Martial went on to play 88 minutes against the Danes while Giroud played his way back into form by netting for a second time in Les Bleus' win. 

Erik Sviatchenk struck a late consolation for Denmark, who struggled to contain the attacking threat of France. 

Double act 

Ultimately, both United and Arsenal fans will be pleased to see their forwards strutting their stuff on the international stage. 

Martial is only going to get even better over the coming months and years at Old Trafford while Giroud has a point to prove (again) in north London. 

With Theo Walcott now recognised as the Gunners' No.1 forward, Giroud has it all to do to convince the Arsenal faithful that he's good enough to lead the line. 

Will Martial score more Premier League goals than Giroud this season? Have your say below!
