Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

BRUS­SELS, Bel­gium (AP): VIN­CENT KOM­PANY, the oft-in­jured leader of Bel­gium’s na­tional foot­ball team, is back in the squad for up­com­ing games against the Nether­lands and Es­to­nia.

Bel­gium coach Roberto Martinez says it will de­pend on his per­for­mance for Manch­ester City this week­end be­fore mak­ing a de­ci­sion how much time Kom­pany would see dur­ing Wed­nes­day’s friendly in Am­s­ter­dam and the Novem­ber 13 World Cup qual­i­fier against Es­to­nia.

Martinez says “we need to get Vin­cent Kom­pany back to match fit­ness.”

The tow­er­ing de­fender has been a key to the suc­cess of the Bel­gian na­tional team in re­cent years as it rose from an also-ran to top of the FIFA rank­ings.

Bel­gium are cur­rently lead­ing Group H with nine points from three matches.
