West Bromwich Albion could be aided by Nacer Chadli’s goal for Belgium last night.
West Brom’s Chadli was a shock inclusion off the bench, as Belgium searched for a route back into the match against Japan, and few predicted that he would be the hero.
The Albion man, who missed most of the past season with injury, reminded everyone of his quality when he entered the field against Japan with his country 2-0 down yesterday.
Chadli was selected to feature a wing-back, and his performance caught the eye as Belgium rescued the contest.
Chadli was the man who scored the winning goal in the most dramatic of circumstances, as he tapped in at the far post after a swift counter-attack.
And West Brom must have been watching with joy, as his price-tag could now be set to sky rocket.
Chadli had almost become the forgotten man at the Hawthorns, due to his lack of impact last term.
However, Chadli has now shown his quality on the biggest stage in football, and West Brom may well feel they have a chance to demand more money for the attacking midfielder now.
If West Brom can raise big money for Chadli this summer then they can re-invest the funds from his sale into transfers of their own, as they plot an immediate return to the Premier League.
