Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has scored another cracker whilst training for France ahead of their Euro 2016 semi-final aginst Germany.

On what looks like a five-a-side pitch, Martial sets himself up by rolling the ball out of his own box before putting his foot through it.

His shot flies past the four outfield players in front of him and was only stopped by the back of the net, giving the keeper no chance.

That wasn't enough for Martial, however, as he then struck another shot into the top corner later on in the training session from a similar distance.

You can watch the goals in the video posted below.

He will be hoping another impressive strike will help him get on the pitch against Germany on Thursday.

The striker has only made two appearances for Didier Deschamps' side at the tournament so far, playing a total of just 59 minutes. Arsenal's Olivier Giroud is preferred as a starter in the French team.    

The hosts will have to be at the top of their game on Thursday night when they face World Cup winners Germany at the Stade Velodrome.

France were able to score for fun in their quarter-final clash with Iceland, putting five goals past the minnows as they sent them home.

Germany's path to the semis was a little tougher, as they came up against Antonio Conte's Italy, a nation they hadn't beaten in eight previous competitive attempts.

With Giroud the striker likely to start, Martial will have to settle for coming off the bench and hoping to impact the game, similar to what he has done throughout the tournament so far.   

Should Anthony Martial be ahead of Olivier Giroud in the France pecking order? Leave us YOUR thoughts in the comment section below!
