Memphis Depay's debut season on English soil hasn't entirely gone to plan. Rated as one of the world's most exciting youngsters last season, the Dutchman has flattered to deceive at Manchester United throughout the course of the campaign. 

Finding himself in and out of the team, Depay has failed to really gain any rhythm to his game and still appears to be adapting to his new surroundings.

But there have been a couple of glimpses of what Depay is all about and United fans certainly won't be giving up on their number seven at this stage.

At just 22-years-old, the former PSV man has time on his side to come to prominence in the Premier League. 

On Friday night, Depay was back with the Netherlands but failed to start the match under Danny Blind's guidance. 

However, the United winger was introduced against France at half-time and quickly made his mark. From two set pieces, Depay assisted two goals. Simple. 

The first, as you can see in his individual highlights below, was a brilliantly whipped in free kick, which found the head of Luuk de Jong. 

The second was quick thinking on Depay's part; the Dutchman played a clever corner for Stoke City's Ibrahim Afellay to smash home. 

Ultimately, Depay's contribution wasn't enough for the Dutch, who went down by three goals to two. 

Manchester United fans: do you expect to see the best of Depay next season? Have your say below!
