VIDEO: Christian Benteke's double strike against USA

Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke carried on his superb season in midweek.

Aston Villa's Christian Benteke has been the find of the season, bought for Aston Villa for a figure reported to be around £7 million.

Now the club wouldn't sell him for three times that, with Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund both claimed to hold an interest.

In midweek he scored twice for Belgium in a 4-2 friendly win away to the USA.

It took his overall tally to 33 this season for club and country in all competitions, which also includes three goals for Genk before his transfer was completed on deadline day.

Everton stars Kevin Mirallas and Marouane Fellaini were on the scoresheet for the away side, with Stoke's Geoff Cameron netting for the USA along with a penalty from Tottenham's Clint Dempsey.

But it was Benteke who was the real star of the show, and after this season you wouldn't expect it to be any other way. Don't bet against Benteke being a star at the World Cup next summer in Brazil.
