Anthony Martial scores brilliant goal in France training

It's fair to say that Euro 2016 has been a disappointing one for France forward Anthony Martial. 

Despite only being 20-years-old, it was widely expected that Martial would play a prominent role for his country during the tournament. 

Ultimately, though, that hasn't exactly transpired and Martial has more often than not had to settle for a place on the bench.

Indeed, Martial has made two appearances for France during the competition, racking up just 59 minutes of action. 

After securing himself a start for the national side's second group game against Albania, he was dragged off at half-time and hasn't been seen on the pitch since.

It has clearly been a frustrating period for the Manchester United man, but it's one that should stand him in good stead nonetheless. 

Perhaps, then, with a quarter-final showdown against minnows Iceland on the horizon, manager Didier Deschamps will hand him a chance to once again prove his credentials. 

Well, if France's latest training session is anything to go by, there's every chance that the versatile forward will be given an opportunity to express himself. 

That's because, as you can see by the video below, he struck a brilliant acrobatic volley on the training ground. 

Unsurprisingly, the Manchester United social media team picked up on the goal and duly relayed it to their fans:

Martial may not be a key man for France just yet, but there's absolutely no reason why he won't have a pivotal role to play at Old Trafford next season. 

Martial could be playing in a front three alongside Marcus Rashford and expected signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic. United are yet to confirm the deal for the Swede, but it will surely materialise sooner rather than later. That trio really should get the United faithful excited. 

Do you expect Martial to still have a key role to play at Euro 2016?
