Manchester United's Adnan Januzaj has been included in Belgium's 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ squad. The 19-year-old is yet to play for the country of his birth after only committing himself to them last month. However, coach Marc Wilmots has included the attacker as one of 12 Premier League players in an initial 24-man party.
The others are Januzaj's United team-mate Marouane Fellaini, Manchester City's Vincent Kompany, Chelsea trio Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois - the last two have been on loan at Everton and Atletico Madrid - Tottenham Hotspur's Moussa Dembele, Nacer Chadli and Jan Vertonghen, Everton's Kevin Mirallas, Arsenal's Thomas Vermaelen and Liverpool's Simon Mignolet.
Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke has been ruled out by injury, with 19-year-old Lille striker Divock Origi called up in his place.
Club Brugge's experienced midfielder Timmy Simons, who is approaching 100 caps, is the most notable exclusion.
Wilmots has included Silvio Proto as a fourth goalkeeper because of injury doubts over Koen Casteels. One of the pair will be cut from the final squad.
Belgium are in Group H along with Fabio Capello's Russia, Korea Republic and Algeria.
