“The news is very positive for us, Kevin and Hazard have not had any structural injuries and they will remain with us,” Martinez said in comments reported by The Athletic.

He added, “They will not be ready for Friday’s match, but in the next stage they will be ready to play. We are monitoring the situation day after day.”

Belgium will meet Italy on Friday 2 July in the quarter-finals, which will be held at the Alien Arena in Germany.
