France – Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial
The biggest concern for Solskjaer heading into the weekend will be Anthony Martial’s fitness.
The forward missed France’s 1-0 win over Bosnia on Wednesday night after picking up a knee injury against Kazakhstan and is a major doubt for the weekend.
Paul Pogba though has seemingly brushed off his hamstring issue having played in all three of France’s World Cup qualifiers.
Portugal – Bruno Fernandes
Bruno Fernandes has been key to United’s success this season and there would have been huge uproar if the midfielder picked up an injury on international duty.
Solskjaer surprisingly left Fernandes out of the starting line-up in the FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Leicester before the break, explaining that the Portugal international needed some rest.
And the United boss got his wish in somewhat fortunate circumstances with Fernandes missing Portugal’s last World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg through suspension after picking up two yellow cards against Azerbaijan and Serbia.
So Fernandes should be well rested in time to face Brighton this weekend.
