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.
