Belgium are set to face Mexico on Friday evening before taking on Japan next Tuesday, but Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi will miss Belgium’s upcoming friendlies due to a foot injury.
The 24-year-old was carrying an injury when he linked up with the Belgium squad earlier this week. Batshuayi has now returned to Chelsea where he will be assessed by the club’s medical staff.
“When Michy arrived he was in pain,” Martinez told RTBF.
“He has not trained since the squad met. He is out both games and has already returned to Chelsea.”
Batshuayi has been in good form for Chelsea this season, having scored two match winning goals, and has scored a total of seven goals in twelve appearances.
