Dedryck Boyata (against Portugal as a substitute of Kompany) and Laurent Ciman (surprisingly in the base against Egypt) were already speelminuten, so it would not be illogical that Leander Dendoncker Monday a chance..

“I would like every game show, such as each player. I don’t know who will play if Kompany is not fit, I don’t know if Boyata than the preference. You wish no one an injury. I think that Vincent and Thomas are very important for the team,” told Dendoncker Saturday after the end of the training in Tubize. “At the world cup nobody wants to be an adult, but you have also suddenly not going to expect that every match will play, that would not make sense when you see who is there for me. When I play, I’m not someone who soon will be broke, already is a world cup or something else: it is the top of the top, that I will have to wait and see. I will still try to quietly stay in my head.”

If Kompany and Vermaelen in the group stage not quite fit prove to be the Anderlecht-defender in balance with Dedryck Boyata as a replacement for the injury-ridden central verdedigingsduo. Ciman is only in the selection as the 24th man. Still, it was Dendoncker yourself not sure of the 23 for Russia. “After all those stories, there was some uncertainty, but I am always in to continue to believe. A surprise, however, it was not. I try to own as little as possible to read all, but good: your family and friends to read and send messages, but I can not answer that, because I know it’s not.”

During that first friendly was there for Dendoncker then, not even a place on the bench. Looking back, it was the coach then, perhaps, certainly from the piece, and he felt no longer the need for him to see the work. “It was not easy for me, a moment of uncertainty. For the match he had said that I was not worried, that there is still no choice was made. But you are anyway sure, in the stands, sitting is never a good sign. So there was some stress, fortunately followed Monday’s relief. The world cup selection is a great reward. The world cup is still the ultimate dream for a football player than the Champions League.”

“Never a hundred percent sure that I’m leaving”

“That is the only player to am from the Jupiler Pro League? That is not a disadvantage, on the contrary I am proud and am also Anderlecht are very grateful for.

After the world cup keeps Dendoncker it possible for viewed at Anderlecht, he is already long time a transfer is promised. “I’m honestly now not doing that. My broker allowed me to call if there is major breaking news. We will see if it happens. It is never one hundred percent sure that I have left, because it first has to happen,” decided Dendoncker.
