Portugal play goalless with Belgium in World Cup friendly

Despite Belgium boasting talent including Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku in their XI the hosts failed to find top gear against a stodgy Portugal side that toiled creatively without their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, who is on holiday following the Champions League final.

"It's a World Cup, it's not just any competition".

Belgium defender Vincent Kompany will require a scan to determine if he can play in the World Cup after injuring his groin during Saturday's goalless draw with Portugal in a friendly.

"Vincent Kompany is a leader", he said.

Vincent Kompany has been included in the Belgium squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup despite concerns over his fitness, while Christian Benteke has not made the final cut. We need to make the outfield players squad 24 hours before Panama, that is the 17th of June. "At that point it was the right time to come off".

The Portugal superstar posted a picture of himself alongside his close friend Miguel Paixao on Instagram while they together stood at a clay tennis court.

Google not to renew contract for Project Maven
Google intends to introduce new "ethical principals" next week involving its use of artificial intelligence , Gizmodo reported. The decision comes amid strong opposition within the technology giant's workforce to the Pentagon project known as Maven.

It is a huge call from Joachim Low after Sane, 22, had a breakout season in England, winning the Premier League title and League Cup with Manchester City.

It's the supporting cast to the centre-forward where Belgium have tremendous depth, though, as they have a set of attacking midfielders capable of rivalling any side in world football.

"Losing Vincent would be bad news", said Hazard.

Belgium began with their strongest possible 11, apart from the injured Axel Witsel and Thomas Vermaelen, and a trial three-man defence.
