Belgium defender Vincent Kompany will require a scan to determine if he can play in the World Cup after injuring his groin during Saturday's goalless draw with Portugal in a friendly.

Kompany, never taking time off from his role as captain, replied: "Oh, it's a United-City thing".

Belgium is in a relatively straightforward group, featuring Panama, Tunisia and England.

Belgium begin their World Cup campaign against Panama on June 18 and Martinez will give Kompany as much time as possible to regain his fitness.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany will lead the squad to Russian Federation, despite the three-time Premier League victor once again suffering a recurrence of his injury problems.

"Until 24 hours before we can still make a replacement", he said. Then we will get a good opportunity to make a diagnosis.

"He is a true leader - his leadership is essential for us", the Spaniard added.

Manchester United man Romelu Lukaku is expected to lead the line, while Chelsea's Batshuayi will offer stiff competition for a starting spot after recovering from an ankle problem.

"I can not be fully satisfied because of Vincent Kompany's injury but apart from that it was the test we needed", Martinez said.

"Christian Benteke has been the toughest decision. It is a World Cup, not a friendly global, so we take this exceptional decision".

The Spanish head coach trimmed his group down from an initial 28, with Crystal Palace striker Christian Beneteke missing out, along with Watford defender Christian Kabasele.

Last week, footage of 23 mattresses being loaded up by a Belgian bedding company before their departure for Russian Federation had people guessing who would miss out on a place.
