Adnan Januzaj is starting for Belgium as they face South Korea, according to widespread reports.

The youngster hasn't had too much of a chance to impress so far in the World Cup, but with Belgium looking good-but-not-great, he's being given a chance to impress before the knockout stages.

Where he'll be playing isn't precisely known but it's likely to be in a role behind Kevin Mirallas in the side.

Januzaj ended a rather long debate over his nationality and where he would pledge his allegiance to, but he was selected for Belgium's World Cup squad and may yet go on to have a starring role in the side. He'll certainly be one of the most important players at the club for next season, although he's excelled at Old Trafford mostly when played on the wings, and with Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata competing for the attacking midfield spot, he may be out there again in Louis van Gaal's 4-3-3.
