Belgium in trouble, key player injured


Vincent Kompanys’ physical condition is a big concern for Roberto Martinez after Manchester City defender left the pitch in the first seconds of the second half in a friendly match.

When Martinez was left only two days to publish the list of 23 players who would represent Belgium in Russia, Kompany injured the muscle.

Kompany has had problems with injuries recent years and now his participation at the World Cup is in doubt.


Martinez, however, is willing to give him time to testify his physical form before announcing the list of players he will get to the World Cup.

“Tomorrow we have to see what’s wrong with Vinny,” Martinez said.

“He felt something on his thigh. Tomorrow we will scan. Such injuries want to rest, but I’m really worried, “he explained.
