Anthony Martial greets France fans with selfie during training session

Only a month or two ago, Anthony Martial was yet to make his international debut for France but now he’s centre stage.

The 19-year-old’s incredible start to life at Manchester United has seen him change from being relatively unknown outside of France to one of Europe’s hottest prospects.

With the national team as well, Martial is likely to challenge Karim Benzema for the striker’s role and Didier Deschamps has a great player on his hands for Euro 2016.

Martial must be living on cloud nine right now but you’d never know it from his persona. Always cool, calm and collected, Martial acts like he’s seen it all before and his nonchalant approach to stardom is taking everyone by surprise in all the right ways.

France have two friendlies during this international break against Netherlands and Germany and Man United fans are certainly hoping Martial can continue the fine form which has earned him such praise so far in Manchester.
