Internationals: Martial, Fellaini and Smalling all start tonight

by Sam Peoples

Anthony Martial starts for France tonight in their international friendly against Russia.

The 20-year-old was left on the bench for their 3-2 win over Netherlands a few days ago but Didier Deschamps has given him a starting role on the left with Antoine Griezmann on the right.

I’m very excited to see how those two can play on the wings because they should be pretty devastating.

Elsewhere, Marouane Fellaini starts tonight for Belgium against Portugal and Chris Smalling is in the heart of defence at home to the Netherlands.

Daley Blind and Memphis Depay both start against England and Matteo Darmian also starts against Germany, so it’s a very busy night for Manchester United players.

We’ll bring you a round-up on how they get on plus a few spotlight articles on individual performances as always.
