Man Utd striker Martial 'really happy' to be back for France after two years out

Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial is delighted to be back in action for France.

Martial played his first international match since March 2018 on Tuesday, when France beat Croatia 4-2.

"It has been a long time since I have played for France and it was important for me to play a good match. I'm really happy," Martial told TF1.

"It was a bit complicated at first because we did not have the ball, but as soon as we managed to combine, we knew how to make it dangerous for them.

"It was a fantastic victory. We collected points and that was important."
