Wilmots unveils Belgium Euro 2016 squad

Belgium coach Marc Wilmots has named his 23-man squad for Euro 2016 finals, with Zenit defender Nicolas Lombaerts missing out through injury.

Manchester City centre back Vincent Kompany had been ruled out earlier and the bad news for the fans is that Nicolas Lombaerts of Zenit failed to make the cut as well.

Nicolas Lombaerts, Dedryck Boyata and Bjorn Enegles all miss Euro 2016 finals through injury, with Christian Kabasele and Laurent Ciman added to the final roster.

Radja Nainggolan and Mousa Dembele, though, made the cut despite battling minor injuries of late.

Belgium have been drawn alongside Italy, Republic of Ireland and Sweden in Group E and they kick off their Euro 2016 campaign with a match against the Azzurri on 13 June.
