Vincent Kompany could play in Belgium's friendly against Australia after a scan revealed the defender's calf injury is not serious.
The Belgium Football Association revealed on Wednesday that Kompany had missed training and gone to hospital for a scan.
And they stated later in the day that the Manchester City captain has been given the all clear and may feature against Australia in a friendly in Liege on Thursday.

Laurent Ciman will come into the Belgium side to face Australia if Kompany is not deemed to be fit enough to start.
