One in one out: Man Utd’s Belgian called up for Euro’s whilst another misses out

Manchester United have two games left this season, including the showpiece FA Cup final in just over a weeks time. After that comes the European Championships, and squads are now starting to be announced by their respective Football Associations.

Today Marc Wilmots announced the Belgium squad that would attend France next month, and one Manchester United player has been included, but another didn’t make the grade.

Marouane Fellaini has been a mainstay in the Belgium team for years now, and although Louis van Gaal loves him, several United fans cannot stand to see him in the line-up. However his call-up to play for the other Red Devils is more than deserved.

The man to miss out is Adnan Januzaj. The young man has had an extremely frustrating season at Old Trafford this term. He started the season in the side before being shipped off to Borussia Dortmund on loan. Since returning he hasn’t done anywhere near enough to force his way into the side which is a real shame – so his omission was an inevitability.
