Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany may be a doubt for this summer’s World Cup after limping off the pitch in Belgium’s friendly against Portugal this evening.
Kompany lasted 54 minutes before appearing to tweak his groin. He was forced off the pitch and had words with Belgium coach Roberto Martinez before disappearing down the tunnel for treatment.
Former City defender Dedryck Boyata replaced the 32-year-old, who will hope the injury isn’t serious enough to make him miss what would likely be his last World Cup.

There is no definite diagnosis on Vinnie’s injury yet and we can only hope it isn’t bad enough to keep the injury-prone City legend out of the World Cup. The centre-back is scheduled to have a scan tomorrow.
Broken Belgians. Vincent Kompany will undergo a scan tomorrow. Suspected groin injury. Roberto Martínez admits that he’s worried: “He felt his groin a bit.” Back-up Thomas Vermaelen is still recovering from a hamstring injury. #mcfc pic.twitter.com/RUoZQcUyrb
