Shoot! would like to wish France international and Manchester United forward Anthony Martial many happy returns as the Red Devils star celebrates his 21st birthday today.

Martial, who arrived at Old Trafford from Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco back in September 2015 in a deal worth up to £58m, kick started his United career in breathtaking style, netting this terrific effort against rivals Liverpool inside The Theatre of Dreams on his debut.

On September 12, 2015; former Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal brought on his new starlet for Juan Mata in the 65th minute, before the French forward sent the home crowd into raptures after dancing his way through the Reds’ defence to slot home United’s third and final goal in their eventual 3-1 Premier League victory.

Van Gaal labelled his strike as a “marvellous goal”.

During his debut season at Manchester United, Martial impressively scored 20 times in all competitions.
