Belgium’s final World Cup squad accidentally revealed due to a pile of mattresses

It seems Belgium’s final World Cup squad has been inadvertently revealed by some mattresses?

The information leaked when Belgian broadcaster VRT showed footage of 23 mattresses that were being shipped to Russia ahead of the tournament with each one indicating which player they were designated for.

Some names which didn’t feature were Goalkeeper Matz Sels, defenders Christian Kabasele and Jordan Lukaku, and midfielders Leander Dendoncker and Adnan Januzaj.

And it suggests some of the more fringe players, such as Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata and Crystal Palace forward Christian Benteke, have been included.

Martinez has named a 28-man provisional World Cup squad that will be cut down to 23 on Monday following Belgium’s friendly with Portugal on Saturday.
