Wayne Rooney is hoping to see Anthony Martial back in action for Manchester United sooner rather than later after the France international was seen leaving Wembley on crutches.
Fans will be well aware that Martial suffered a foot injury during the recent match between England and France. He was substituted in the 67th minute and later headed towards the team coach with the walking aid.
France manager Didier Deschamps managed to ease some of the worry by insisting it was just 'a knock', but the lack of news since Tuesday has left fans fearing the worst.

Rooney is also concerned for Martial and is hoping to speak to his Red Devils team-mate in the near future to get a clearer picture of what has happened.
"From a personal point of view, and from Manchester United's point-of-view, I hope he is okay," Rooney told reporters. "I will try to ring him."
Who will replace him?
Despite his tender years, Martial has installed himself as an important first-team player under Louis van Gaal. The 19-year-old has appeared in eight of United's 12 Premier League games thus far, scoring three goals and creating one other.
But Van Gaal has plenty of options to replace Martial, who has been featuring on the left-wing in recent games with Rooney up front. Therefore, a lay-off for Martial will give Memphis Depay the perfect opportunity to win his place back.
The former PSV Eindhoven star arrived at Old Trafford in the summer with a much bigger reputation than Martial, but a series of poor performances has seen him fall down the pecking order.
With a number of critics questioning his attitude, the Holland international would have been waiting for a moment like this to prove them wrong.
