Christian Benteke has had his woes recently. He picked up an Achilles tendon rupture which ruled him out of the World Cup in the summer and has also struggled for form at Aston Villa.

The Belgian striker however recently demonstrated that he has not lost the gifts he once performed on a regular basis, after a starring performance in a recent win against Sunderland.

For Belgium Benteke has not scored since 2012. His last goal for the Red Devils was against Scotland in October 2012, so the Aston Villa player has certainly had a barren spell for his country.

The 24-year-old is however expected to lead the line for Belgoum tonight in their tie with Cyprus, as usual starter Romelu Lukaku is out with a hamstring problem.

He has certainly demonstrated in training that class is permanent.

He scored this fantastic goal against Liverpool stopper Simon Mignolet yesterday. He nonchalantly chipped the ball over the head of the oncoming Liverpool man, with the effortless cool of a man under no pressure.

Villa fans will hope he can continue his good form with Belgium tonight and bring it back with him to the Premier League.
