Is that Fellaini? Belgian midfielder changes his hairdo


Marouane Fellaini made a promise at the beginning of the World Cup.

If Belgium won it all, he would shave his head.

That’s saying something, coming from the Manchester United midfielder recognizable by his floppy Afro.

Sadly, Belgium didn’t make it that far, they fell to Argentina in the quarterfinals. But Fellaini must have liked the idea of changing his look so he went with a new style anyways — braids!

Look at how excited he is about his new ‘do:

If he’s going to do away with the Afro, though, he may want to consider changing the design of his Twitter page.

Belgian national team holds comfy movie night

The upstart Belgian national team just might be the quirkiest soccer bunch on social media.

Ahead of their friendly match against France, Romelu Lukaku posted this creative bit on Instagram, revealing how the players like to spend their free time in the hotel: That’s a lot of Belgians cuddling up in one bed. Wonder who the big spoons were. And who got to pet Fellaini’s hair.

Lukaku’s gem isn’t the first video from the Belgians that has been a bit hit on the internet. Earlier this month, Mousa Dembele posted this video featuring Spurs teammate Jan Vertonghen, who apparently doesn’t like sharing water:
