Didier Deschamps praised Anthony Martial’s performance in France’s 2-0 win over Kazakhstan but the
Manchester United forward suffered an injury scare during the match.
Martial was instrumental in the build-up to Ousmane Demebel’s opening goal in France’s World Cup qualifier on Sunday and his turn and pass created the opportunity for the Barcelona winger.
But the United forward was forced off in the 59th minute after suffering a knee injury.
France are now assessing the extent of Martial’s injury, with the 25-year-old grimacing on the bench after leaving the field.
However, Deschamps was pleased with Martial’s latest appearance for the national side.
‘They did some interesting things,’ Deschamps said of Martial and Dembele.

‘Ousmane has confirmed that he’s getting back on the right track. He’s capable of repeated sprints and making the difference. He was rewarded with his goal.
‘Anthony was behind the opening goal. It’s good for them both.
‘From the moment I selected them, they are in the squad to be used. I have other attackers in this squad. But for the profile of the opponent, it was important to commit opponents and to dribble.
‘They both did it pretty well.’
