Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has pulled out of the France squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Moldova and Iceland due to the recurrence of his knee injury.

Anthony Martial won’t be able to add to his 18 caps for the French national team after his knee flared up again.

The 23-year-old has battled with injury in his right knee in recent games.

The Manchester United player sustained the new injury during the FA Cup quarterfinal clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves claimed another scalp in what has been a fantastic season after they defeated the Red Devils 2-1 at home to setup a semifinal meeting with Watford…

They are in search of a first title since 1960 when they won their fourth FA Cup title.

Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota scored the goals for the hosts against Manchester United who got what proved to be mere consolation through Marcus Rashford in added time.

Anthony Martial played the entire duration of the Wolves game.

He was starting his first match against Wolves since returning from the injury suffered in the Champions League last 16 first leg clash with French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) at home.

French manager Didier Deschamps has called up Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar as his replacement.
