Man Utd reject Januzaj: I wanted to show my English critics

Belgium matchwinner Adnan Januzaj had a word for his critics in England after yesterday's World Cup performance.

Real Sociedad winger Januzaj toyed with Danny Rose before unleashing a classy finish to hand Belgium a 1-0 win over England on Thursday.

"Obviously my job was to show the people, in the past in England, I had a lot of criticism," the former Manchester United midfielder said after his first international goal.

"I wanted to show those people that I'm here. I'm very happy with that. I'm very pleased to score a great goal against a good opponent.

"I've put in a lot of work. This year I've been playing in a team at Real Sociedad who have made me grow as a player. At 23, the most important thing is to play games and keep progressing. I'm very pleased to be going that way."
