The future of Christian Benteke is certainly a major talking point of the summer. The Aston Villa powerhouse is being linked with plenty of moves this summer.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard recently told Sky Sports how much he wants him at Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur were linked with a move by The Mirror and Liverpool are long time admirers.

But for now Benteke has other things on his mind, international duty with Belgium.

Fresh off the back of beating France 4-3, and climbing to number two in the FIFA World Rankings, Belgium take on Wales on Friday in a European Championships qualifier.

In preparation the Belgium team seem to be fairly relaxed and took to a spot of crossbar challenge yesterday.

This video was posted and while the rules of the game, in which Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois and Hazard, Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen, Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan and Napoli attacker Dries Mertens all took part, were not clear - it looks like Benteke lost.

The punishment, a round of ear flicks from the rest of the guys.
