Manchester United duo Januzaj and Fellaini get Belgium call-up

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj and Marouane Fellaini have both been called up to Belgium’s squad by Marc Wilmots for their 2016 European Championship qualifiers against Andorra and Bosnia.

Both players were part of Belgium’s squad at the World Cup and despite their limited game time at United this season, Wilmots has included them in Belgium’s squad.

Fellaini scored for Belgium after coming on a substitute during the World Cup and on more than one occasion, Wilmots has insisted how he is an important player for United.

As for Januzaj, his worth to the side has never been questioned but it is a case of where Van Gaal sees him fitting into the team.

Both players will certainly be hoping for injury free evening.


Here’s Belgium’s squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtous (Chelsea), Simon Mignolet (Liverpool), Jean-Francois Gillet (Torino)

Defenders: Toby Alderweireld (Southampton), Nicolas Lombaerts (Zenit), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City), Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham), Laurent Ciman (Standard Liege), Sebastian Pocognoli (West Brom), Jason Denayer (Celtic), Jelle Van Damme (Standard Liege)
