The Manchester United striker has been singled out after his performance on the Lisbon lawn.
If there is one who could be disappointed at the end of the match between Portugal and France, it is Anthony Martial. The French striker had four huge chances to score a goal, which would have been his second in the World Champions jersey, but he had no success or the lucidity needed to shake the net.
At a press conference on Monday, Hugo Lloris wanted to defend his teammate. “He would have deserved to score, he created the chances, the Portuguese goalkeeper made important saves. He was happy with the result but on a personal level he was a little disappointed. He lacked success but it’s good bodes well for the future. If he is present among us it is because the coach shows his confidence in him, it is not a coincidence ?. He has adapted very well to the team, thanks to his personality, his qualities of footballer, his knowledge. The coach gave him confidence, he made the defensive efforts, he came to help Pavard in the right lane, that means that he has the right state of mind “.
