Manchester United and France striker Anthony Martial may be the youngest nominee to be the FIFA 17 cover athlete, but it's hard to deny that he's probably the most exciting one.

In a simple training session for France ahead of their clash with Germany in the Euro 2016 Semi-Finals, Martial was filmed making not one, but two incredible shots from distance that nearly tore a hole through the net.

The 20-year-old Martial became the most expensive teenage transfer in history when he signed with Man United last summer for over $46.5 million. He went on to lead the team in all scoring with 11 league and 17 total goals.

In December 2015 he was awarded the prestigious Golden Boy award for the top Under-21 player in Europe.

His incredible play, mature attitude and all-around thrilling performances earned him a spot in the voting to be FIFA's new cover athlete for the highly-touted game. He will be competing against Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez, Chelsea midfielder and former Premier League MVP Eden Hazard and Borussia Dortmund superstar Marco Reus.
