Marouane Fellaini hails ‘great’ Belgium win after dominating performance

by Sam Peoples

Marouane Fellaini is delighted with Belgium’s 5-0 victory over Cyprus in their 2016 European Championships qualifier.

The Belgian midfielder was in stunning form and his two goals, both of which you can see here including his stunning second goal, helped Belgium into third in their group.

With Wales beating second placed Israel third 3-0 that was spearheaded by a wonderful Gareth Bale performance, Belgium simply had to get all three points against Cyprus and they comfortably did so.

Fellaini played a major role in the win with his brace of goals and it continues what has been a remarkable turnaround from the midfielder which started way back when he came off the bench away to West Brom to score his first ever goal for the club.

Since that performance, Fellaini has been on a steady upward curve and he is now in the best form of his United career by some margin, heading into the crucial run-in stage.

Louis van Gaal has been a fan of using Fellaini for his physical presence and now that the confidence is flowing through his veins, he has far more to offer than just brawn.

Ander Herrera has been fantastic in midfield, as have Juan Mata and Michael Carrick in midfield, but Fellaini has emerged as an unlikely hero this season and long may it continue.
