International round-up: Quiet nights for Martial and Memphis, excellent from Blind

by Sam Peoples

Chris Smalling – Played the full 90 minutes unlike John Stones who was replaced by Phil Jagielka. He’ll start for England in Euro 2016 and comes through the international break without injury.

Daley Blind – Very good performance from Blind I thought. Looked sharper than he did in recent games for Manchester United which can only be a good thing. Now has a few days rest before Everton.

Memphis Depay – A pretty uneventful performance from Memphis but he didn’t play bad. It looked like he was playing within himself and that’s not his typical style. Can see he still hasn’t got his confidence back.

Anthony Martial – Quiet 45 minutes from Martial before he was taken off by Didier Deschamps. Good thing for Man United is that he was taken off so will be rested up for this weekend.

Matteo Darmian – On the wrong end of a battering by the Germans in a game which finished 4-1.

Marouane Fellaini – Played 80 minutes before he was replaced in a 2-1 loss to Portugal.
