Tottenham trio make Belgium World Cup squad

1:30pm Tuesday 13th May 2014

Tottenham Hotspur trio Jan Vertonghen, Moussa Dembele and Nacer Chadli have all been included in Belgium's World Cup squad.

Vertonghen, Dembele and Chadli are among a number of Premier League-based players included in coach Marc Wilmots' 23-man party.

Goalkeepers Simon Mignolet and Thibaut Courtois play for Liverpool and Chelsea respectively, whilst Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku are both also Chelsea players.

Manchester United pair Marouane Fellaini and Adnan Januzaj are both included, along with Manchester City's Vincent Kompany, Arsenal's Thomas Vermaelan and Everton's Kevin Miralles.

It has been a mixed campaign for the Spurs trio, with £7m summer signing Chadli making just 15 top-flight starts, midfielder Dembele seeing his season interrupted by injury and centre-half Vertonghen unable to re-capture last season's form.

Belgium face Algeria, Russia and South Korea in Group H.
