Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has given Vincent Kompany two weeks to recover from a groin injury in time for the World Cup, retaining the Manchester City captain in his squad but putting Laurent Ciman on standby for the tournament in Russia. Coach Roberto Martinez had been expected to cut his initial 28-man squad by five players Monday but instead named 24, including central defender Kompany.A fit Kompany would greatly enhance Belgium's chances.The 32-year-old Kompany came off during Belgium's friendly against Portugal Saturday with an injured groin.The four players cut are goalkeeper Matz Sels, defenders Christian Kabasele and Jordan Lukaku and striker Christian Benteke, who scored just three goals for Crystal Palace in the past season.Romelu Lukaku and Michy Batshuayi will go as Belgium's No. 9s.
