Nainggolan snubbed by Belgium

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan has not been selected to Belgium’s World Cup squad as the former Cagliari has been placed on the “standby list” along with Michy Batshuayi, Giullaume Gillet, Thorgan Hazard, Sebastien Pocognoli, and Jelle Van Damme.

Nainggolan, who has been outstading since his move from Sardinia to the capital, didn’t make the squad over the likes of Marouane Fellaini, who has been out of United’s XI for months.
