PICTURE: How a bald Marouane Fellaini will look like Zidane if he keeps his promise

Mock up Bald Fellaini

Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini has promised to shave off his hair if Belgium win the World Cup, and here is now he may look...

Marouane Fellaini turning into a World Cup star seemed as unlikely as David Moyes winning sports personality of the year, but the Belgian is showing early signs of the impossible.

After a dreadful debut season at United, Fellaini scored Belgium's World Cup opener after coming off the bench, and helping them to a 2-1 win.

And the midfielder is buoyant, making the remarkable promise, as per Belgian newspaper Nieuwsblade:

"If Belgium is world champion, I will shave my head." 

Fellaini's afro hairstyle was iconic among fans of Everton, and the travelling Belgian support. United supporters to be fair, are yet to take to him.

The £27.5 million man may intend on keeping his promise, but it's still a 22/1 shot for them to win the tournament, and the chances of seeing a bald Fellaini remain somewhat slim.

So instead, we have produced a mock-up of what he may look like with a Pierluigi Collina-inspired bald head, but hold on, does he remind you of anybody?

Squint, and it's Zinedine Zidane? Now if only he could play with a fraction of that technical ability...
