Anderlecht’s Julien Duranville has sights set on being in Belgium’s World Cup squad

Anderlecht wonderkid Julien Duranville has his sights set on being in Belgium’s World Cup squad.

Duranville became the third youngest player ever to play for Anderlecht last season when he made his debut just two weeks after turning 16.

He made his second competitive appearance for the senior team against OH Leuven at the weekend and scored his first goal, finding the back of the net six minutes after coming on.

The forward has yet to establish himself as a first-team regular, but is aiming even higher than just doing that this season, with his goal being to go to the World Cup in November.

“Juliens’ next goal now is to prove what he can do as a base player,” his mother told Het Nieuwsblad.

“Everyone should forget about their age and look at their level. If he can help the team, why not put him at kick-off? The coach decides, but he wants to show his potential.

“His ultimate goal is the World Cup in Qatar.”
