Belgium boss Marc Wilmots has revealed that Vincent Kompany should be fit for his side's World Cup quarter-final clash with Argentina.
The Manchester City centre-back sustained a groin injury during his side's win over the USA on Tuesday, while fellow defenders Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen also suffered knocks.
However, Wilmots is confident that the defensive trio will be fit for action for their last-eight match on Saturday.
When asked about the fitness of Kompany, Wilmots told reporters: "He looks to have made a very good recovery.
"That stands to reason after the exertions against the U.S. But our medical staff have done an outstanding job and will sort it out."
Belgium face off against Argentina in Brasilia on Saturday.
