Belgium are closely monitoring Romelu Lukaku’s fitness after confirming the striker is nursing an ankle injury.
The Manchester United striker was part of the side that thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0 on Saturday, playing the full 90 minutes and scoring his seventh Premier League goal of the season.
However, Belgium have confirmed the forward is carrying a slight knock, although they are not yet ready to rule him out of their 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday and Cyprus on Tuesday.
A statement from Belgium said: "Romelu Lukaku underwent an MRI scan but no fracture or structural damage has been diagnosed.
"The next days he will follow an individual training program. It is however too early to state that he won't be match fit for the Bosnia and/or Cyprus game."
