Vincent Kompany earn recall to Belgium squad for matches against Netherlands, Estonia


Vincent Kompany has made three appearances for Manchester City this season since recovering from a groin injury and has been given a spot in Roberto Martinez’s squad in place of the injured Toby Alderweireld.


Full-back Thomas Foket has been called up for the first time, while Thorgan Hazard has recovered sufficiently from a knee problem to join brother Eden.

There was no place again for Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan, with Martinez stressing that the 28-year-old must recover full fitness first.

Belgium face Netherlands on November 9 before taking on Estonia four days later.
