So what nation does he claim?


Won't play for Kosovo, they can't play in official competitions at the moment.

Albania and Belgium both want him but he has always refused call ups to Belgian youth teams and prefers to play for Albania.
quote:

In June 2013, Marc Van Geersom, former coach of the Belgium U-18 and U-19, has declared that Januzaj has several times refused a call up of Belgium, since he prefers to play for Albania.

Playing for Albania over Belgium seems strange but I guess he has a stronger connection to him. Been a pretty good game for him but don't throw a parade just yet this is Sunderland after all.

Granit Xhaka and Shaqiri both really want to play for Kosovo but are forced to play for Switzerland. It's an ethnic thing for the former Yugoslavs

This article says Januzaj will likely pick Belgium

LINK

Would be a better choice seeing his complicated ethnic background and the fact that Belgium is by far a better option.

good and bad about playing for Belgium, the country is a melting pot with multiple languages, but it seems like their players want to kill each other out there

I met a girl from Belgium at the bar once. She came from a Flemish background. I think they all agree they hate the Dutch though.

Everyone, especially on here, praises the shite out of Belgium, but the 3 or so times I've seen them play I was underwhelmed considering their hype.

well not the ones who speak dutch

They literally all speak english,french, dutch and german. It just depends what town they are from. I had this chick break it down for me in Croatia when i was shite canned.

Last month i was in Antwerp at a festival and was in shock when this chick who was hitting on me could barley speak english

He can also play for Serbia, but there's not a chance in hell of that happening.

Kid has roots like an oak tree, Jurgen needs to look on ancestry dot com and see if he can find an American connection.

They haven't really been pretty to watch offensively during WCQs but they definitely have gotten the job done. They have a +13 GD so far and have been rock solid defensively.

It will be interesting to see what they do next week in the wake Kompany's injury. Probably won't matter though (up 5 on Croatia with 2 games left, they play Croatia next), barring a major collapse.
