Football news - Man Utd's Anthony Martial set to miss France's game in Bosnia with knee problem

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial is expected to miss France’s World Cup match against Bosnia with a knee injury.
“It’s nothing serious but he’s not at his best and he won’t be in tonight’s training,” Deschamps said at a press conference in Sarajevo.

Martial started the 2-0 win over Kazakhstan, setting Ousmane Dembele ready for the opener before being replaced by Kylian Mbappe, who missed a penalty after a disappointing performance against Ukraine.

“Kylian can’t be happy with his performance (against Ukraine) and I’m sure he’s disappointed with his lack of efficiency, but every player can have a hard time sometimes,” Deschamps said.

France lead the standings with four points from two matches, having rebounded from a 1-1 home draw against Ukraine with an away win over Kazakhstan last Sunday.

World champions may be looking to build up the pressure from the start against a team that may want to sit down and try to hurt them at the break.

“We have to be ready from the start, be right in the game and we have the talents to make the difference. But Bosnia have two exceptional players, (Barcelona’s Miralem) Pjanic and (Roma’s Edin) Dzeko, ”captain Hugo Lloris said. .

“You have to go there, put rhythm and intensity in the game to create space in defense. ”

Deschamps is also anticipating another delicate Group D game in Sarajevo.

“We’re the favorites, but I’m expecting a tough game,” he said.

“All points are important but there will be five games left. Tomorrow’s game will not be decisive. ”

Ukraine and Finland, who both have two points from two matches, meet in the other Group D game, also on Wednesday.
