After watching Kompany get through the last-16 tie at Salvador’s Arena Fonte Nova unscathed, Belgium boss Wilmots is confident he will feature against Argentina in Brasilia.
He said: “He looks to have made a very good recovery.” Fellow defender Thomas Vermaelen missed the encounter with the US but is back in contention following a hamstring injury while Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are struggling with niggles.
“That stands to reason after the exertions against the US,” Wilmots added. “But our medical staff have done an outstanding job and will sort it out.”
