Christian Benteke has been withdrawn from the Belgium squad following reports that the Palace striker needs to rest a niggling knee injury.
Benteke, 27, is yet to score in 2018/19 and his goals tally since joining the Eagles – just three in 36 Premier League matches – has been the focus of much debate. In a recent interview on Sky Sports, manager Roy Hodgson was keen to defend his misfiring forward: "It's difficult for Benteke and it's difficult for me and the team because we want to see him scoring goals," he said. "He's certainly trying his best but somehow it won't fall for him. Psychologically these things do matter and do have an effect on players. The sooner he gets off the mark the better it will be for everybody." National team boss Roberto Martinez confirmed on Wednesday that Benteke would leave the squad and Flemish newspaper HBVL believes the problem may keep him out for the remainder of September.
