(Football) Januzai to play for Belgium
(04-24 17:02)

Belgium coach Marc Wilmots says that talented Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj has chosen to play for the Belgian national team.
The 19-year-old was born in Brussels of Balkan heritage and has played for United since 2011. He was able to choose between several nations for international duty, including Albania and Kosovo.
Wilmots announced Wednesday he "received the official confirmation that Adnan Januzaj has offered to defend the Belgian colors for the rest of his career.''
The decision strengthens a Belgium team built around such talented youngsters as goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and playmaker Eden Hazard. Both belong to Chelsea, though Courtois is on loan to Atletico Madrid.
Belgium is favored to do well at the World Cup in June, where it faces Russia, South Korea and Algeria in Group H. --AP
