The Adnan Januzaj decision has finally been made. Manchester United's impressive young midfielder has decided to play his international football for Belgium and not England or Kosovo.
Here's the B/R story. And here are the tweets that broke the story.
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
And here's a selection of the best Twitter reaction to the news:
Two days ago, Januzaj still had the chance of being developed & nurtured by both Moyes and Hodgson; now he has neither. Such is life.— Nooruddean (@BeardedGenius) April 23, 2014
Januzaj declares himself for Belgium, confirmed by their coach @wilmotsmarc. And on St George's Day too. What kind of Englishman does THAT?— Oliver Kay (@OliverKayTimes) April 23, 2014
Fascinating that @WilmotsMarc breaks the story of Januzaj declaring for Belgium on twitter. First time a coach has broken news this way?— Ben Lyttleton (@benlyt) April 23, 2014
Belgium coach @WilmotsMarc has used his Twitter account to announce Januzaj choosing Belgium. That's modern.— Sport Witness (@Sport_Witness) April 23, 2014
Januzaj wouldn't even get into the England starting 11 now and he wouldn't have in the future— Benjamin Green (@Ben_Green09) April 23, 2014
I heard Jack Wilshere was delighted over the news Januzaj had chosen Belgium.— Will Ako (@Akolaar) April 23, 2014
England fans will be disappointed. Belgium fans, however, will be celebrating the availability of yet another talented player.
