Michy Batshuayi has been given every chance to prove his fitness after Roberto Martinez included the Chelsea striker in his 28-man squad for Russia.
The 24-year-old was enjoying a highly productive loan spell at Borussia Dortmund [7-goals + one assist] from nine Bundesliga starts before suffering a serious injury last month. The club confirmed that Batshuayi had rolled his left ankle following a challenge from Schalke 04 midfielder Benjamin Stambouli causing ligament damage. Although no official timeline was proposed, Roberto Martinez always maintained it was "possible" that he could be fit for the Red Devils World Cup campaign. Belgium face Portugal in a pre-tournament friendly on June 02 before the squad will be cut to 23 two days later. Fellow Premier League players Vincent Kompany and Kevin de Bruyne [Man City], Eden Hazard [Chelsea], Marouane Fellaini and Romelu Lukaku [Man United] and Christian Benteke [Crystal Palace] also make the squad but Divock Origi [Liverpool] and Kevin Mirallas [Everton] miss out.
