Januzaj scored a hat trick in Manchester United's U-21 victory over Sunderland on Monday, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder came on as a late substitute in United's 4-0 win over Queens Park Rangers, but could be staking a claim for more playing time in the first team. He will undoubtedly see less playing time with the arrival of Angel di Maria and Ander Herrera, but could still be a potent option for Louis van Gaal.

Januzaj will begin training with Manchester United in England on Monday after taking time off following the World Cup.

Januzaj will be joined by Robin van Persie and Marouane Fellaini in training at home while the rest of the team is in Miami for the final of the Guinness International Champions Cup against Liverpool on Monday. Januzaj showed lots of promise last season and new manager Louis van Gaal has a history of playing young players right away.

Januzaj's first appearance for Belgium was cleared from the record after FIFA eliminated the match against Luxembourg from official records, reports the Daily Mail.

The match saw too many substitutions by manager Marc Wilmots, which is against FIFA rules for the friendly match. The match will also not count toward FIFA's world rankings.

Januzaj announced Wednesday that he will play international football for Belgium, according to Sky Sports.

Januzaj was also eligible to for Kosovo, Albania, Turkey, and Serbia, and could have waited a few years to apply to play for England, but instead he chooses a Belgium sign that is poised to make a solid run at this summer's World Cup. It's unclear if Januzaj will make the team, which is deep with Premier League players.

Januzaj came on for Shinji Kagawa in the 68th minute and assisted on Chicharito's 91st minute goal during Manchester United's 4-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Manager David Moyes said this week that he has been limiting Januzaj's playing time recently to keep him from getting exhausted late in the season, with Kagawa the beneficiary of the available playing time. The latter has been playing well of late, which could limit Januzaj's starts.

Manager David Moyes said that he has been keeping Januzaj off the pitch recently in order to avoid the 19-year-old suffering from exhaustion, the club's official web site reports. "We are just being careful with him. We have to do the right thins and he has played a lot of football," Moyes said.

Januzaj has three goals and two assists in 22 appearances this season, although he hasn't found the back of the net since December 21 against West Ham, with his last Premier League assist coming back on New Year's Day against Tottenham.
