Belgium Announce Final World Cup Squad

However, the Manchester City man has been deemed fit enough to be included in Roberto Martinez's travelling party.

"We are going to try to use the rules in our advantage".

During Belgium's World Cup warm-up friendly with Portugal last night, Manchester City captain Kompany was forced off with suspected groin injury.

Dedryck Boyata has been included in Belgium's 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

Of the five players the mystic mattresses foretold would be missing the World Cup, Leander Dendoncker and Adnan Januzaj are both in the 23, while Christian Benteke won't be going to Russian Federation (possibly due to being bobbins for at least 18 months). "He's been working very hard in the camp, played in a fantastic manner against Portugal". It's essential for us to give him every opportunity.

Martinez noted initial scans of previous Kompany injuries had not necessarily provided a true picture, and that "something that could be shorter is a lot longer, and could be the other way round".

His injury was the key talking point on Saturday after Belgium's 0-0 draw with Portugal as both sides showed attacking intent but no killer blow less than two weeks before the World Cup begins.

It was defences on top for the majority of Saturday's clash of the European heavyweights at the King Baudouin Stadium, goalkeepers Beto and Thibaut Courtois untested during a flat first half.

While the Parkhead defender was able to survive the cut, Watford's Christian Kabasele, Newcastle goalkeeper Matz Sels, Lazio's Jordan Lukaku and Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke were not so fortunate.
