Belgium's Thomas Vermaelen ruled out of USA last-16 World Cup clash

Thomas Vermaelen is ruled out of Belgium's last-16 clash against the USA at the World Cup in Brazil due to a hamstring strain.

Belgium defender Thomas Vermaelen will play no part in tonight's last-16 clash against the USA at the World Cup due to injury.

The Arsenal player has failed to recover from a hamstring strain that he picked up during Belgium's 1-0 win over Russia in Group H.

Coach Marc Wilmots told reporters: "For Thomas the game against the USA is just too early. When we reach the quarter-finals, the chances are very good that he gets fit by then. Within two to three days, he can resume group training sessions in principle."

Meanwhile, Vincent Kompany remains a doubt for the encounter in Salvador due to abdominal and groin pain.
