Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld is a part of Belgium's squad for the friendly against Saudi Arabia, but Crystal Palace's Christian Benteke is left out.

Toby Alderweireld has been named in Belgium's squad for this month's friendly with Saudi Arabia, despite featuring just twice for Tottenham Hotspur since November.

The 29-year-old damaged his hamstring against Real Madrid on November 1 and has subsequently managed a combined 180 minutes in games against Newport County and Rochdale over the past 19 weeks.

Alderweireld recently declared himself fully fit for Spurs, though, and it was announced on Thursday that the centre-back is now back in training.

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has therefore called up Alderweireld for his side's friendly against Saudi Arabia on March 27.

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke has been left out, meanwhile, having endured a poor run of form at club level this term.
