It's a sad day to be Albanian, but a great one to be Belgian. That's after it was announced Manchester United's resident wonderkid Adnan Januzaj will play his international football for his nation of birth, with Belgian national coach Marc Wilmots proudly breaking the news -- complete with an excitable exclamation mark -- on Twitter:
J'ai reçu la confirmation officielle qu'Adnan Januzaj se met à disposition de l’équipe nationale belge pour la suite de sa carrière!— Marc Wilmots (@WilmotsMarc) April 23, 2014
Januzaj was born in Brussels, but also qualified to play for Albania and Kosovo through his parents, and England, with the Three Lions' boss Roy Hodgson apparently hoping the teenage attacker would make himself available when he met the eligibility requirements.
However, he's opted to become a part of Belgium's immense wave of young talent, and it surely won't be too long before we see him called up to the national side. Unfortunately the World Cup's probably going to come slightly too early, though he's surely going to go on and become a staple in the their national side in the future.
