Portugal play goalless with Belgium in World Cup friendly

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

Belgium have retained injured Vincent Kompany in their final World Cup squad but put fellow defender Laurent Ciman on standby in case the Manchester City skipper is not fit for their opening match in Russian Federation.

Vincent Kompany's World Cup dreams could be in doubt after he was forced to withdraw from Belgium's goalless draw with Portugal in the 55th minute. Kompany, fitness permitting, is still a colossus, while Tottenham Hotspur duo Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are among the best defenders in the Premier League. But Tunisia (another of England and Belgium's World Cup opponents) had faced Portugal earlier this week and had posed a far greater threat than anything Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard could muster here. "We need to wait a period of seven, eight days with Vincent then we will get a good opportunity to make a diagnosis". "He performed in a fantastic manner when he was on the pitch".

Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea), Simon Mignolet (Liverpool), Koen Casteels (VfL Wolfsburg).

"I expect a lot from him", said Martinez. But it is for the balance of the squad.
