Belgium: Martinez denies WC squad leak ahead of Portugal test

The head coach for the Belgian national football team Roberto Martinez hit back at a supposedly leaked list of the final squad that will be heading to Russia for the World Cup later this month, speaking at a press conference in Tubize on Friday. Martinez insisted that his final selection was not finalised, saying: «There are many details that will affect that final 23 so, very clear, there is... Еще no truth whatsoever behind the story.» He went on to say that due to the strength of the national side, there will be frustration when the final World Cup squad is selected. «I understand the frustration. I am frustrated in the fact that we’ve got more players [who] deserve to go to the World Cup than just the 23,» Martinez said. Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen also spoke to the press, ahead of the team's friendly against Portugal on Saturday. The upcoming match will be the footballer's 100th cap for the Belgian national team.
