CONFIRMED: Belgium line-up v Australia - Kompany starts!

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is fit to start for Belgium this evening.

Belgium: Courtois, Alderweireld, Lombaerts, Kompany, Vertonghen, Witsel, De Bruyne, Mirallas, Mertens, Defour, Origi

Belgium have a great chance to impress their home fans and prove that they should have gone further in the World Cup earlier this summer.

The Belgians have some of the most talented players in the world with Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku among their ranks.

There was a scare in defence earlier this week when Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany was sent for a scan, but results showed that he wasn’t carrying a serious problem.

However, Belgium retain plenty of defensive integrity through the likes of Tottenham Hotspur star Jan Vertonghen.

The Australians won’t be turning up just to make up the numbers and will want to prove they are a much better side than they showed themselves at the World Cup.

Any Australian sporting side always takes a very determined and aggressive approach into any game and it will be interesting to see whether they try and impose themselves on this match.
