Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has named his 28-man preliminary squad for World Cup.

Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi have been included together with Manchester City duo of Kevin de Bruyne and Vincent Kompany.

Tottenham trio Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele are in but there’s no place for AS Roma’s Radja Nainggolan in a significant surprise.

Belgium begin their campaign against Panama on June 18 before they face Tunisia five days later. They play England in the final game of Group G on June 28.
