It wasn't pretty but a late goal from Belgium gave them a 1-0 win over Russia and they have now guaranteed themselves a place in the Round of 16.
In a performance quite similar to Argentina's yesterday, substantial favorites Belgium seemed to sleepwalk through almost the entire match, only to nick a goal in the final minutes to win. It was Eden Hazard who orchestrated the goal, dribbling down to the Russian goal line and then picking out the youngster Divock Origi, who finished confidently and has quickly asserted himself a talent that needs to start. Romelu Lukaku had his 2nd straight poor showing but Kompany and the Belgian defense kept things tidy. We may see several changes in their final group match with their fate already sealed.

Vincent Kompany will return from suspension to bolster Manchester City's back-line in the Old Trafford showdown on Tuesday.

Kompany sat out City's 5-0 win over Fulham after his sending-off in the previous week's win at Hull but will return to partner Martin Demichelis tonight. Sergio Aguero and Matija Nastasic remain out due to injury, but aside from that Manuel Pellegrini has a full strength squad to choose from.

Vincent Kompany salvaged a late goal as Manchester City lost 4-1 on aggregate to Barcelona in their first-ever appearance in the Champions League knock-out stages.

It was always going to be difficult for City to come back from two away goals down to Barcelona at the Camp Nou. With City down 2-0 heading into today's match they had to take the game to Barcelona which opened up opportunities for Lionel Messi and company all evening. Through luck and skill they managed to keep Barca out until the 67th minute but Messi effectively ended the tie with a goal. In the late going Pablo Zabaleta was shown a red card, Vincent Kompany scored a consolation goal and Dani Alves scored for the final 4-1 aggregate margin.

Manchester City took a two goal advantage in the first half, one courtesy of Vincent Kompany but allowed Fulham to bring the game level in the second half, with an own goal from Kompany included, only to tally two more late in a 2-4 roller coaster victory.

Quite the Jekyll and Hyde performance from City, but eventually their class reigned supreme despite their defensive struggles away from home. Kompany's O.G. was absolutely bizarre, playing with blood trickling from a cut above his right eye, he attempted to clear a cross inside the box and sent a backwards trick shot that would have been in the running for goal of the season had it been intended for the right net. Seven players contributed a goal or assist for the Sky Blues, as they present plenty of options to fantasy managers during the festive period. Yaya Toure, scoring his 9th of the season seems the safest bet to avoid rotation during this stretch.

Manchester City have named captain Vincent Kompany in the squad to fact West Brom after a two-month absence with a thigh injury.

Belgium defender Kompany has missed the last 10 games in all competitions so his return is a big boost for City and he could take his place alongside Martin Demichelis, with Joleon Lescott relegated to the bench. Matija Nastasic, David Silva and Stevan Jovetic are still sidelined with injury.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has returned to training with the squad after six weeks out.

This is great news for Manchester City, with Kompany expected to be ready play within a week, although the game against Swansea this weekend will probably come too soon. The chances are the captain will replace Martin Demichelis when he does return to first team action, renewing his partnership with Matija Nastasic at the centre of the City defence.

The Belgian Football Association is to send their national team physiotherapist, Lieven Maesschalck, to Manchester City on Friday in an effort to assess the extent of Vincent Kompany’s groin problem

Kompany has been plagued by a variety of muscle injuries over the past 12 months, and Manuel Pellegrini, the City manager, confirmed last week that he had no chance of returning before next week’s international break. Belgium have concerns about his long term fitness ahead of next summer's World Cup and want to check how serious this latest problem is.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is still training alone after suffering a setback in his recovery from a groin injury and is certain to miss at least the club’s next two games and in all likelihood next week’s Champions League game with CSKA Moscow.

There is no point in aggravating the injury further by City rushing Kompany back, so expect him to miss the next three games. Manuel Pellegrini is likely to partner Matija Nastasic with Martin Demichelis against Norwich this weekend, with Joleon Lescott seemingly out of favour after he was left out of the match-day squad against Chelsea.

After declaring him fit earlier in the week, Manuel Pellegrini has announced that Vincent Kompany will not play against Chelsea.

Kompany suffered a thigh injury earlier this month and Pellegrini admitted that, "Vincent is still injured, so he will not have a chance to play this game." Otherwise, Manchester City have a full squad to choose from.

Vincent Kompany could be back in a Manchester City shirt this weekend as boss Manuel Pellegrini declares him fit for their match at Stamford Bridge.

Whether Kompany will start against Chelsea remains to be seen, but just having him back in the squad would be a huge boost. However, one would think City's medical staff will be doing all they can to have their skipper ready for one of their toughest league matches of the season.

Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has been ruled out for up to four weeks due to a thigh injury.

This is a huge blow for City and Manuel Pellegrini, who will badly miss their captain. The injury will open the door for Joleon Lescott to partner Matija Nastasic, but the team never looks as solid without Kompany, who has been in outstanding form this season. The other option is Martin Demichelis who has yet to feature since his transfer after picking up a knee injury in training back in September.

Manchester City have signed Atletico Madrid defender Martin Demichelis for a reported £4.2m.

This is a sensible deal by City as they need defensive cover with captain Vincent Kompany sidelined for over a month with a groin injury. Demichelis played under boss Manuel Pellegrini at Malaga and River Plate and featured at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The experienced 32-year-old is expected to assume a back-up role once Kompany return from his spell on the sidelines

Manchester City have confirmed that Vincent Kompany will be out for 4 weeks because of a groin injury sustained against Newcastle United on Monday.

Matija Nastasic and Micah Richards are already sidelined with the former not quite ruled out yet for Sunday's match against Cardiff. This leaves few choices for Manuel Pellegrini to make in defense, making options like Gael Clichy, Pablo Zabaleta and Joleon Lescott safe bets to use in fantasy against a Cardiff squad yet to show much firepower.

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany says he does not expect to be out for long after injuring his groin against Newcastle on Monday night.

There are no exact estimates yet regarding how long Kompany may be out for, but one would expect him to miss a minimum of a two games. City are a little short of defenders at present because Matija Nastasic has an ankle problem, although he may return to training this week. The other options in the squad are Micah Richards (still not fully fit) and Dedryck Boyata, who has played very little football over the past 12-months. Pellegrini could therefore be tempted to add another central defender to the squad before the transfer window closes.

Reports in France claim big-spending Monaco are lining up a shock move for Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany.

This is one to keep an eye on as Monaco certainly have the funds to lure big names to France, with 30 million Euros the price quoted in L'Equipe. Whether Kompany would want to swap the Premier League for Ligue 1 is another matter, with the Belgium international already on massive wages at the Etihad, and City would certainly not want to lose their captain.
