Man Utd attacker Martial withdraws from France squad

Manchester United winger Anthony Martial has withdrawn from the France squad due to a knee strain.

The 23-year-old played the full 90 minutes of United's FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Wolves on Saturday but is suffering from pain in his right knee.

Martial, who has been replaced by Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar in Didier Deschamps' 23-man squad, had only recently returned to action following a groin problem.

An FFF statement read: "Anthony Martial is suffering from recurring problems in the right knee. He again felt severe pain in his right knee after Saturday's match against Wolverhampton."
