Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj has decided to select Belgium as the national team he would like to play for.

The League Managers' Association (LMA) have issued a statement in which they say that United were guilty of behaving in an "unprofessional manner" in the way they handled the firing of David Moyes yesterday.
Everyone knew on Monday afternoon that Moyes was going to be sacked, but it was not until a meeting with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward on Tuesday morning that he was actually told he was being let go.
A grim reaper haunted David Moyes from the stands directly beside the dugout as the Scot returned to Goodison Park to watch his old side Everton host Manchester United on Sunday. A day later, a leak from Old Trafford spread across all media outlets suggesting that Moyes had lost his job. Two days later, Manchester United FC officially confirmed the news.
David Moyes has released a statement over his sacking as manager of Manchester United. It reads:
"To have been appointed as manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest football clubs in the world, was and remains something of which I will always be incredibly proud.
"Taking charge after such a long period of continuous stability and success at the club was inevitably going to be a significant challenge, but it was one which I relished and never had a second thought about taking it on.
I was eleven years old when Manchester United beat Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final. At the time, I was not aware of treble implications, David Beckham's unanticipated introduction into the starting eleven, or even Sir Alex's construction of a football dynasty. The only thing I understood was that the team in red never gave up, never surrendered, and never lost faith.
So it ends. David Moyes' 10-month reign as Manchester United manager came to an abrupt, rather unexpected conclusion this morning, with the Scot finally relieved of his duties after an exasperating 51-game stint in the toughest club job on the planet.
The Scot was deemed 'the Chosen One' by exiting legend Sir Alex Ferguson back in May, but following what has become United's worst ever season in the top flight, fans are now insisting that Sir Alex got his last and most important decision at the club very wrong.

5. Manchester United vs Wigan (Community Shield) – August 11, 2013
Had it been any other trophy, it surely would be #1 on the list.
The best-kept secret in English football is out. David Moyes has been sacked and will no longer be forced to prowl the Old Trafford touchline, scowling and wincing in equal measure, as Manchester United's season goes down the proverbial drain.
As with Sir Alex this time twelve months ago, soccer moves on relentlessly.
Boring, boring Chelsea! What lowly scoundrels of asinine, archaic, and acerbic anti-football. How dare they let down the neutral fan with these putridly pedestrian performances! Don't they know? Soccer is all about entertainment; bringing bread and circuses to the hungry masses, not serving self-interest and chasing silverware.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Starting 11 player to first team player to U-21 squad player. Jozy Altidore came into the 2013-2014 Premier League season with high hopes.
