Januzaj is one of six Premier League-owned players in the starting XI, alongside Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea), Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham), Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United), Kevin Mirrallas (Everton), and Mousa Dembele (Tottenham).

Much was made of the 19-year-old's international future before he opted to pay for Belgium, the country of his birth. He was eligible to play for Albania, Turkey, Kosovo, or even have decided to play for England, but he would have had to attained residency status first.

Depending on the result between Algeria and Russia, Korea Republic could progress with a victory.

Belgium: Courtois, Vertonghen, Fellaini, Mirallas, Mertens, Van Buyten, Defour, Lombaerts, Dembele, Januzaj, Vanden Borre.
