"France missed": Ashley Young interviews Didier Deschamps & # 39; s decision to remove Manchester United striker Anthony Martial from the squad
- Anthony Martial scored five goals in nine games for Manchester United
- But he has not been called up by France since 2017 and is not in the current squad
- Ashley Young is surprised that he was not included in their plans
Manchester United captain Ashley Young believes that France champions have made a mistake by ignoring Anthony Martial, whose form has made some of United's attacking footballers "unbelievable" this season.
Martial is in great shape with United with five goals in nine games, but has not represented his country since 2017 and was again excluded from the squad of Didier Deschamps in the European Championship qualifiers against Moldova and Albania.
Young said, "The way Anthony plays with Marcus (Rashford) is sometimes not playable. Anthony was a big mistake when he was injured.
Ashley Young believes France missed a trick when Anthony Martial did not call
You can see that he is a natural scorer. For me, I think France is missing – I can not understand why he is not in her squad. That's up to them, but it can only get better. & # 39;
The 34-year-old Young indulges in his role as enforcer and guide for the younger players. While struggling for goals at the start of the season, Partizan Belgrade's 3-0 victory on Thursday was a great way to watch the left-back.
"Some of the combinations from the front guys were incredible when we watched behind," he said. "Sometimes this season we blew teams away with our offensives. If you look to the future, you think it's only a matter of time (to score).

"As captain, the players will come to you and talk to each other. It's a different time than when I came through, but I'm the same way and will never change, if others think I'm too hard or too hard. Everyone wants the best for each other. The teenagers were at Man United and have the DNA. They know what matters. & # 39;
Young is suspended for Sunday's game against Brighton, giving 19-year-old left-back Brandon Williams a chance.
"Every time he wears a first team jersey, he was brilliant," said Young. He wants to learn and listen. I'm sure if he's called, he'll do another very good job. & # 39;
