Kompany Puts Country Before Club!

Vincent Kompany looks set to feature for Belgium despite the concerns of his club.
Kompany has not played since January due to a calf problem but has reported for duty ahead of the World Cup qualifying double-header against Macedonia.
Belgium assistant head coach Vital Borkelmans insists no decision has yet been made on whether the 26-year-old defender will play but has stressed his importance to the country.
Borkelmans: "Vincent is now training with the physical coach.
"He also trained very hard at City.
"He is very important for the group and we are quite happy he is here. We will make a decision on Wednesday or Thursday whether he can play or not."
Roberto Mancini: "We don't want to take a risk at this moment because we have one game and then it is the international break so it's best he is recovering.
"The calf is a dangerous injury. If you don't recover very well then you can have a problem for four, five or six weeks in a row.
"We talk many times with the coach [at City] but Vincent is very important to us. He is the captain of the team."
