Kevin De Bruyne: In training with Belgium

De Bruyne was training with his Belgium team-mates ahead of Friday's World Cup qualifier against Croatia when the incident occurred.

And Belgium boss Marc Wilmots must now wait to discover the extent of any damage 24 hours after losing centre-half Vincent Kompany for his side's final two qualifiers.

Wilmots' side go into the games with a five-point lead in Group A, and a draw in Zagreb will guarantee a place in Brazil next summer.

De Bruyne started two of Chelsea's first three games this season but was left out of the squad for Sunday's trip to Norwich amid criticism from Jose Mourinho.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
