Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez has confirmed Chelsea magician Eden Hazard will remain captain of Belgium despite the return of Manchester City player Vincent Kompany to the Belgium squad.

Hazard was named captain in September with Kompany battling with a string of injuries and Hazard will continue as Belgium captain despite the return of Kompany.

“Eden Hazard started the qualifying campaign [as captain] and will carry on with his duties,” Martinez said.

“I expect this group to have five or six captains and I expect Vincent to be one of those.”

Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi are the other Chelsea players named in the Belgium squad.
