Vincent Kompany named in final Belgium squad for World Cup despite injury

Manchester City club captain Vincent Kompany will be flying to Russia for the World Cup this summer, having been selected in Roberto Martinez’s final squad, despite sustaining an injury in their most recent friendly.

The 32-year-old was forced off after 54 minutes in Belgium’s friendly with Portugal on Saturday, appearing to have dome some damage to his groin.

Vinnie underwent scans yesterday and while there has been no official word of the outcome, his inclusion in the Belgium squad is a good sign he may play some part for the Red Devils.

Kompany is joined by Kevin De Bruyne, which should surprise no one, while Manchester City academy graduate Dedryck Boyata, who replaced Kompany against Portugal, also gets to experience the World Cup.
