The teenager has put in some impressive showings at the World Cup and is hopeful of joining a number of his international team-mates in the top tier of English football

Belgium and Lille starlet Divock Origi has revealed it is a boyhood "dream" of his to play in the Premier League.

The 19-year-old has put in two impressive performances from the substitute's bench at the World Cup, including scoring the winning goal against Russia, and has been linked with a number of European sides as a result.

But the teenager is hopeful he can follow a number of his international team-mates into the English game, and hinted that any move could come to fruition before the start of the 2014-15 campaign.

"As a little boy I always dreamed of playing in the Premier League but I'm still young and now I'm in an important tournament so I'm try to focus on the team," he told reporters.

"Then my entourage will see with [Lille] what I'll do."

Origi also believes that Belgium's qualification for the knockout stages after just two matches has shown the football world just what the team is capable of.

The Red Devils head into Thursday's game against South Korea requiring just a point to top Group H, and the youngster believes the team are getting better as the tournament moves forward.

"It's very special to play games like this and show we have talent in the group. It was also a special match as we showed in the last minute.

"Mentally we are stronger now and more confident."
