BRUSSELS -- Belgium coach Marc Wilmots has picked Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj for his World Cup squad, three weeks after the teenager had chosen to play for the country's national team.
The 19-year-old Januzaj was born in Brussels with Balkan heritage and has played for United since 2011. He was able to pick several nations for international duty, including Albania and Kosovo.
Wilmots announced a 24-man team, but said the number of goalkeepers would be reduced from four to three based on the availability of Koen Casteels.
Januzaj joins other talented youngsters in the squad, including goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and playmaker Eden Hazard.
At the World Cup, Belgium will face Russia, South Korea and Algeria in Group H.
