– Dries Mertens: “I want to score at my friends a free tv to give”
– Adnan Januzaj: “if I go to the toilet was when the trainer asked to not to win England? What can I say?”
Coach Roberto Martinez says Saturday is the last training in Dedovsk for the departure to Rostov count on twenty Red Devils, seventeen outfield players and three goalkeepers. Dedryck Boyata, Marouane Fellaini and Thorgan Hazard are not of the party. Currently, it is unclear why they are not meetrainden, but they are in principle not eligible for a move in the eighth-finals.

The training session was as usual, only a quarter open, and afterwards continued to work behind closed doors to the duel with Japan tactical prepare.
Vermaelen with blue eye
As expected and announced trained Vincent Kompany and Romelu Lukaku join the group. The strikeris fully recovered from his ankle injury. Behind the name of Vincent Kompany are still a few question marks. The defender of Manchester City is fully recovered from his liesblessure, but today/Saturday and Sunday there will be training to be tested or Kompany enough matchfitheid has to be against the Japanese for ninety minutes.
If that is not the case, Thomas Vermaelen is a more than viable alternative in the back. Against England showed Vermaelen that there is on him can be counted. “It’s like he’s never been away,” said the coach about it. Vermaelen still has a black eye after his collision in the groepsduel against England, but that would not be a problems may be cause for the match against Japan.
