Januzaj Commits International Future To England

February 3, 2014

januAdnan Januzaj is reportedly ready to commit his international future to England.
The Manchester United starlet, 18, is understood to have told friends he is keen to play for Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions.
However, the Belgian-born winger admits his father Abedin will have the final say when he does become eligible.
“Adnan feels at home in England now,” a pal told The Sun.
“He loves the football over here, the stadiums and the passion of the fans.
“He has already knocked back an approach from Belgium and does not regret it.
“He’s happy to wait until he can play for England.
“The only obstacle is his father, he is a major influence in his life and career and Adnan knows the decision will ultimately be taken by his old man.”
Januzaj’s background makes him eligible to play for Belgium, Albania, Turkey, Serbia or Kosovo — if they are granted recognition by FIFA.
However he is now seemingly willing to wait to qualify for England through residency.
Under FIFA rules, that could be another two-and-a-half years with Januzaj having been at United since he was 16.
The only threat to England’s hopes is if Kosovo are approved to take part in FIFA tournaments — as his parents are said to be very proud of their heritage.
