Fellaini Ends Drought!

Fellaini Ends Drought!

Over in Brazil, a Manchester United player who many see as somebody who won`t be at Old Trafford much longer, made his impact in the World Cup.

Marouane Fellaini, coming on as a second half substitute with Belgium, surprisingly, losing to the group minnows Algeria, Fellaini scored the equalizer, in the 70th minute, with a deft back header which got the Belgians back into a game which they subsequently one 2-1.

However, we`d like to point out that goal ended something of a drought that had seen Fellaini go 23 hours and 51 minutes for Manchester United without scoring.

He came on and played a massive role in changing Belgiums fortunes in the game. For me he did something for country he has yet to do for club - put himself about. Whether due to being injured, not being played correctly or playing out of fear of being injured I don't think it's unfair to level the criticism that Fellaini never got stuck in for us. He lost most aerial duels, never looked threatening from set-pieces, didn't drive at the opposition from deep, didn't gamble on a long shot or stick his body on the line defensively. Next season Van Gaal won't expect anything less than 100% commitment which I think will bring the best out of Fellaini, he won't get away with lacking confidence, poor form or playing within himself like he got away with this season.
