However, Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne are still doubtful. Both players were injured in the last-16 clash against Portugal – De Bruyne suffered an ankle injury, while Hazard pulled a hamstring – and they have not trained this week, including on Thursday morning before the team flew to Germany.
“It will be difficult for Eden to play tomorrow because of a soft issue injury and maybe a little different for Kevin who’s had a ligament problem,” Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said.
“We know that we are fighting against time but we are going to take until the last minute to take the decision. We have seen an improvement but we’ll only see tomorrow whether they can be involved or not. Unfortunately, we cannot make a decision at the moment.”
We are the best two teams statistically at the tournament. Two teams that have each won a record 14 games in a row in the European Championship,” Martinez added.
“It’s a shame we have to face each other in the quarter-final. But it’s the quality of this tournament I suppose and we need to be ready for it. There are not a lot of secrets, both sides look like club teams and tomorrow’s game is going to be decided by small details.”

Such form, befitting the top-ranked nation in the world, saw them dominate Group B – with a 3-0 success against Russia being followed by comeback victory versus an emotional Denmark and then a regulation win over debutants Finland.
Amongst the scorers in that group-stage stroll was Golden Boot-contender Romelu Lukaku, who Italy midfielder Matteo Pessina this week described as “the best striker in the world”, and the Inter forward’s strike against Finland was a record-extending 63rd for his country. Lukaku leads the line for the most experienced squad at these Euros; a group which contains five players with 100 caps or more – 15 of whom played at Euro 2016, while 18 featured at the last World Cup.They do, however, now meet something of a nemesis for them historically, as Belgium’s record in 22 meetings with Italy includes only four wins and 14 defeats.
To take a step closer to emulating their nation’s biggest football achievement to date – reaching the final of this tournament back in 1980, when they lost 2-1 to West Germany – manager Martinez may therefore seek to recall when he met Friday’s opposite number, Roberto Mancini, in the 2013 FA Cup final. On that day, his Wigan Athletic upset the odds to claim their first-ever major trophy against Mancini’s Manchester City.
