Adnan Januzaj commits his international future to Belgium

Adnan Januzaj  made his Manchester United first-team breakthrough earlier on this season when he scored two wonder goals away at Sunderland on his full debut, but much has been made about the youngsters international future. Januzaj, 19, had around seven different international sides he was eligible for, but today he has made his decision.

Belgium, Kosovo, Turkey, England and others were all possibilities for the young star, but Belgian manager Marc Wilmots has today confirmed that Januzaj is now available for selection for the Belgium national team.

Adnan Januzaj hasn’t featured for the first-team much in recent weeks, thats probably because United don’t have an awful lot to play for so David Moyes was testing out other players. If selected by new interim manager Ryan Giggs, Januzaj has an outside chance of making Belgium’s World Cup squad who’ll be looking to make an impact on the highest stage in June.

With players like Vincent Kompany, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku at their disposal, Belgium are one of the fastest growing nations in terms of talent, and Adnan Januzaj is next in that long list.

Personally I feel its the right choice. He was never going to be able to compete on the world stage if he chose Kosovo, and it’d be a while before he’d be eligible for England if he were going to go down that route.
