Fellaini ruled out of Wales clash

The Manchester United midfielder was unable to complete training on Wednesday and was subsequently taken to hospital, where it was revealed he has a pelvic injury

Belgium coach Marc Wilmots has confirmed that midfielder Marouane Fellaini will miss Friday's crucial Euro 2016 qualifying clash with Wales due to injury.

The Red Devils currently lead Group B but are only ahead of Wales on goal difference, and they will be without the Manchester United midfielder, who has been ruled out with a pelvic problem.

Fellaini trained with his team-mates on Tuesday but was unable to complete the session and was subsequently taken to hospital to assess the problem.

"The Fellaini scan shows a reaction to the pelvis bone," Wilmots confirmed on Twitter. "He will not be ready for #walbel and leaves the squad for further rehabilitation."

Belgium and Wales played out a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture in November.
