Belgium coach Marc Wilmots says he has given Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj some simple advice during international duty this week - do the exact opposite of what Louis van Gaal has been asking you to do at United!

"I saw the two games he played with Antonio Valencia behind him," Wilmots said.

"Van Gaal asked him to stand close to the sidelines, I ask exactly the opposite, that he comes inside.

"I want him to come on to his left foot from the right to give that ball or shoot at goal."

The 19-year-old Januzaj has gradually got more playing time under Van Gaal this season, after initially not featuring in the Dutchman's plans.


Belgium play Iceland tonight and then Wales on Sunday.
