Kevin De Bruyne has withdrawn from the Belgium squad to face Iceland on Wednesday and decrease lower back to Manchester City.
The Royal Belgian Football Association cited a fitness trouble after the City playmaker emerge as substituted after seventy three minutes of Sunday’s UEFA Nations League loss to England at Wembley.
