“Last season Anthony showed he made big strides,” said Solskjaer. “Now it’s time again to make even bigger strides, to develop more.
“He scored 23 goals last season, which was a big return, but every season is a challenge and you cannot rest on your laurels at Manchester United, there are demands in any position.
“We want Anthony to kick on. I thought with France, against Portugal, he showed his qualities as a centre-forward, getting into positions, and Rui Patricio made a few good saves.
“That might have affected Anthony’s confidence, but for me it’s him getting the chances. That’s the big thing, because I know his conversion rate has always been good.
“Maybe, at the moment, the keepers have made good saves against him, but that will change quickly.”
