Belgium suffered a mighty Euro 2016 blow on Saturday when inspirational skipper Vincent Kompany was ruled out of the tournament after failing to recover from injury.
“I’ll miss the Euros. To me that’s very sad news,” the 30-year-old Manchester City captain wrote on his Facebook page.
“So I could be standing here, feeling sorry for myself. I could fear for my career, as others may do. I could give up…That is not me.”
Kompany has been dogged by a series of injuries for most of the season and the defender limped out of the Champions League semi-final defeat to Real Madrid on Wednesday after just 10 minutes.
