Benteke’s International Glory
Well, talk about learning from your mistakes. Since Christian Benteke missed a point-blank range header against Spurs , the Villa striker has since buried one in each of his two international games for Belgium. After his goal against Serbia last week, Benteke rose again against Scotland to open the scoring and help secure another win for Belgium’s ever impressive ‘Golden Generation’.
(New extended highlights – Benteke hits the bar on 2.40 and scores on the 4.50 mark)
After some nay-sayers already started to compare Benteke’s shooting prowess to Emile Heskey, after only a couple of misses in the Spurs game (some fans deserve players to flop for Villa, if that’s all the chance they give them), Benteke has shown there’s more chance of him winning the Golden Boot at the next World Cup in Rio with the Belgium team, than quietly fading away at Villa after scoring on his Villa Park debut.
When Lambert’s Villa plan clicks into place, Benteke will no doubt be a key piece of the jigsaw, but like Bent, he just needs the pieces next to him to fully compliment him to be a real threat. UTV.
