The Manchester City skipper sat out the Premier League champions' 2-2 draw with QPR at the weekend and will not be fit enough to feature during the Euro 2016 qualifier on Sunday

Belgium captain Vincent Kompany will miss his side's Euro 2016 qualifier against Wales on Sunday with a calf injury.

The Manchester City defender sat out his club's 2-2 Premier League draw at QPR at the weekend and was left out of the Belgium team for Wednesday's friendly against Iceland.

And coach Marc Wilmots revealed Kompany would not be in contention to feature when Chris Coleman's men visit Brussels this weekend.

"I received a call from Vincent earlier," Wilmots told RTBF. "He is out for Manchester City for 10 to 12 days, so is unavailable for Sunday.

"It's a shame but there is no problem, there are only solutions."

Belgium currently sit third in Group B, three points adrift of leaders Wales having played a game less.
