Anthony Martial has been named in the France squad for games against Netherlands and Uruguay

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has been recalled to the French national team ahead of their upcoming fixtures against Holland and Uruguay.

The former AS Monaco prodigy has been out of Didier Deschamps’ squad since March, missing out on a place in their World Cup winning side to the likes of Florian Thauvin (Marseille), Ousmane Dembélé (Barcelona) and Thomas Lemar (Atlético Madrid).

However, the national team confirmed on social media that Martial will now officially return to the squad for their UEFA Nations League match against the Netherlands, as well as their international friendly against Uruguay.

This is because the 22-year-old has been one of the standout performers for Manchester United under their mini-revival in recent weeks, and he has reportedly been selected to fill in for the injured Lemar.

Martial has scored five goals in his last four appearances in the Premier League, including a brace against Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

There’s also a notable call up for Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho.
