Earlier in the week, Martin Keown was talking about Man United’s wasteful big spending on an uncapped youngster. Well that youngster is now capped. The 19 year old forward came off the bench to make his France debut in a 1-0 friendly win away to Portugal. France won the game through a superb late free-kick in the 84th minute through Lyon midfielder Mathieu Valbuena.
France are hosting the Euro 2016 so have automatically qualified and Portugal still top in their 5 team group. Martial might not have done any miracle in his 16 mins+ but being capped on its own is an achievement and now all he has to do is build his form.
