Trio in Belgian World Cup squad

Posted on 13 May 2014  - 13:45

Nacer Chadli, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen have been named in Belgium's 23-man squad for the World Cup.


All three players were regulars through Belgium's qualifying campaign as they finished top of European Group A with an unbeaten record, eight wins and two draws.

They will now face Algeria, Russia and South Korea in Group H in Brazil, opening their campaign against Algeria in Belo Horizonte on June 17.

And talking of Algeria, Nabil Bentaleb has been named in Algeria's provisional 30-man squad for Brazil, having made his debut in a friendly against Slovenia in March.

Meanwhile, Benoit Assou-Ekotto - who has spent the season on loan at QPR - has been called into Cameroon's provisional 28-man squad for the finals.
