Deschamps: You can't use Man Utd winger Martial as super sub

France coach Didier Deschamps says Manchester United winger Anthony Martial is no super sub.

Deschamps left Martial out of his Les Bleus squad this week.

"He's a player who's probably better when he starts than when he comes on," Deschamps said last week. "A bit like Lacazette.

"All 24 players want to start. Anthony is much better, he's decisive. The last game [at CSKA] highlights what he can do. He's getting back to a good level. He's more used by Mourinho.

"He could have been in the squad. It's a choice. He was there during the Euros, he went through a tough time, which he got over. I can only tell him to continue to make me think about him."
