Anthony Martial left out of France squad for World Cup qualifiers

  • But his impressive recent form for United has not been enough for him to earn a France recall

French Manager Didier Deschamps omitted Anthony Martial from the squad for the upcoming global break, despite the fact that he is the national team's leader in goals and assists.

The 21-year-old impressed in United's Champions League win over CSKA Moscow this week before limping off with a thigh injury and has not been included for France's games on October 7 and 10.

The 21-year-old has been in impressive form for the Red Devils this campaign, playing a direct part in eight goals across the opening two months of the season.

He has so far played just 353 minutes of football this season for Manchester United.

Anthony Martial misses out on a place in France's squad for their upcoming qualifiers against Bulgaria and Belarus, while Moussa Sissoko earns a recall.

While the Man United star was snubbed, the squad includes some surprise inclusions.

So why was Martial left out? Anthony is much better, he's decisive.

He has frequently made an impact off the bench, highlighting the strength and depth Jose Mourinho has in his squad.

"He's getting back to a good level".

So that's 5 goals & 4 assists in 352 mins for Martial this season while Coman has just 1 goal & 1 assist in 436 mins.

Anthony Martial could not have done any more (against CSKA Moscow).

Competition for places is intense - in defence and midfield as well as attack.
