I was already considering Everton due to the Howard connection.
As stated, Afro dude is now with Manchester United. You still get Kevin Mirallas (came on as a sub against the US, big man - of course Belgium has a lot of those) and Romelu Lukaku (big dude who came on as a sub in extra time, completely changed the game, and scored the 2nd goal for Belgium).
As for Fellaini, he wasn't good this year for Man U. Maybe with a new manager in Louis van Gaal, he will turn things around.
Best Belgium player is Eden Hazard. Plays for Chelsea. His younger brother, Thorgan Hazard, is an up and coming talent who is also with Chelsea (but just got transferred to a team in Germany - that's breaking news by the way!). Captain for Belgium is Vincent Kompany. He is a center back who is also the captain of Manchester City - defending EPL champions.
That should be enough info to make you knowledgeable and impress some Belgians.
