Anthony Martial Produced A Moment Of Magic To Break The Deadlock In Manchester United’s Match With Real Madrid On Sunday.
The French youngster had endured a quiet pre-season tour up until the end of the first half of the game in Santa Clara –but then did something very special.
Picking the ball up on the left, surrounded by defenders, his quick footwork saw his create some space from where he put the ball on a plate for Jesse Lingard to score the opening goal it was a moment of brilliance from the former Monaco player and one timed perfectly to remind manager Jose Mourinho of his talents.

Martial found himself on the periphery during Mourinho’s first season at Old Trafford and with the arrival of Romelu Lukaku and the continuing emergence of Marcus Rashford his role at the club has looked uncertain.
But if he continues to produce moments like that his future as a Red Devil looks very bright.
