Leander Dendoncker is a regular starter at Wolverhampton Wanderers and his performances for the Premier League club have helped him routinely make it to the Belgium squad.

However, the 25-year-old doesn’t get regular opportunities to play with his national team as he has only five appearances since the start of last year and only two of them have come in 2020.

Roberto Martínez started the Wanderers player in Belgium’s 2-1 friendly win over Switzerland earlier this week.

The former Anderlecht man was replaced by Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans after the first half, and Het Nieuwsblad provides the reason behind his substitution.

It’s claimed the Belgian was replaced against Switzerland because he was struggling ‘with groin and knee pain’.

Belgium take on England and Denmark in the UEFA Nations League matches in the coming days and the newspaper states Dendoncker is ‘very uncertain’ for Rode Duivels’ next clash against the Three Lions on Sunday.

Wolves take on Southampton after the international break and Nuno Espírito Santo will be hopeful Dendoncker can regain full fitness to face the Saints.
