After the latest round of international fixtures ahead of the World Cup, Dedryck Boyata’s chances of going to the World Cup might have just increased.
The defender is well known by many of us for having a few mistakes in him but, at the same time, it’s fair to say that we can see the talent he has got.
Indeed, if he can cut the errors out he could become a really strong defender with his pace and power obvious to see.
And, after Vincent Kompany came off in Belgium’s game with Portugal with injury issues, he might have a good chance of making Roberto Martinez’s final 23:

We know most of our players going to the tournament but Boyata’s summer destination is still unconfirmed.
He has a chance, though, and with this news around Kompany he might just go to Russia as well.
Fingers crossed for him.
