The 2016/17 season is over in all the major European Leagues with the league and the cup games having come to a conclusion. Most of the footballers have headed out on break; some enjoying quality time with their families in the confines of their homes while others are plotting summer moves from Ibiza. However, a select few are taking part in the international friendlies and the World Cup qualifiers.
On Tuesday, Belgium took on Czech Republic in one of those friendlies and quite predictably, came out on top. There were a lot of talking points from the game like Eden Hazard’s injury before the game, Roberto Martinez adopting a 3-5-2, and the goal scored by Michy Batshuayi, assisted by Lukaku (which can also become a regular sighting by September).
However one thing that people missed was the solid performance by Marouane Fellaini. He anchored the midfield and even scored a goal. But the highlight was when Fellaini went full-Hazard and dribbled past two Czech players. Some crazy skills from the Afro-haired Belgian!
Fellaini is one of the most underrated players at Manchester United. Despite the criticisms, he has strived under three managers in the form of David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho. His unconventional playing style and aerial prowess make him an asset to any team. His future looks secure for now at Old Trafford.
Check out the video below where Fellaini produces a moment of magic:
