While the season and the chase for both the tittle and Champions League place is getting in to the final phase, many of players are also think about the upcoming World Cup. Yesterday, the Belgian squad was hit with bad news – their striker, Benteke, got injured during the training and will be sidelined for at least 6 months. Although he wasn’t in spectacular form (like in past season) nor his team, Aston Villa, is in the battle to avoid relegation, his absence will be a great handicap for Belgium during their time in Brazil. But, once again, football shows us that it doesn’t know any borders or limits, because three players from three different teams showed what kind of spirit is present in their national team. Liverpool’s goalkeeper, Mignolet, along with Man.City’s captain, Kompany, and Everton’s striker, Lukaku, wished their friend and team-mate a quick recovery from the injury.

This is really nice message that they send both to their friend and to football fans. Only thing left for us is to wish luck to Benteke during his recovery period and all the best to Belgium during the World Cup.
