Romelu Lukaku may just have to rest for a while as he may not play against Bosnia-Herzegovina for Belgium’s away World Cup qualifier.
Although the Manchester United striker received positive results regarding his ankle injury this week, Belgium boss Roberto Martinez does not want to risk Lukaku.
Belgium are already assured of winning Group H and allowing Lukaku to play may be a greater risk for them if his condition gets worst.
“At the moment, Romelu is working separately,” Martinez told reporters.
“He has not joined the group yet since he arrived. We need to be a little bit patient.
“I would say he is very uncertain for Saturday. We will make a decision probably on Friday, but I would say that it is a little bit difficult for him to be involved on Saturday.
“But we are still hopeful he will be involved on Tuesday [against Cyprus].”
Lukaku will be training and will stay fit for their match in Sarajevo.
“He wants to play. He came with a little bit of a sore ankle. It is important that he gets that fully recovered. It is a period of the season that is really busy.
“We will give it as long as we can to make the final call but he is very uncertain for Saturday.”
