Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne return to Belgium squad for World Cup Qualifiers

Two City stars are in the Red Devils list for two tough matches

Two Manchester City stars will return to the Belgian national team squad for this month's international break:

Vincent Kompany and Kevin De Bruyne are part of the list of the Belgium team that will play a high-profile friendly against Netherlands (November 9) and a World Cup European Qualifier against Estonia (November 13) starting next week.

Kompany is back after a long time. His multiple injuries meant he couldn't get back to the national team scene, but now he's at least somewhat healthy and will probably start for City in the Premier League match against Middlesbrough. De Bruyne missed the last international matches in October after suffering a hamstring injury in City's visit to Swansea.

Roberto Martínez has enjoyed a very successful start for the Red Devils, winning three of his first four matches in charge and it looks like his talented squad will finally begin to function as an actuall football team.

Having Kompany and De Bruyne will certainly help Martínez achieve his goal as a coach, and if they don't get injured, hopefully the two City stars will do a great job for Belgium.
