Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial has been recalled to the France squad by coach Didier Deschamps after his impressive recent form with Manchester United.

Martial, who has scored five goals in United’s last four Premier League games, comes in for France’s Nations League match in the Netherlands on November 16 and their home friendly against Uruguay four days later.

Martial was not in the France squad that won the World Cup in Russia. He won the last of his 18 caps in a friendly away to the Russians in March.

France know a draw away to the Dutch in Rotterdam will secure their place in the finals of the new Nations League, which will feature four teams and be played in June next year.

A defeat, though, will give the Netherlands the chance to leapfrog the World Cup winners when they play Germany away on November 19.

The friendly against Uruguay will be played at the Stade de France on Tuesday, November 20.
