Belgium are hoping Manchester City playmaker Kevin de Bruyne will return in time to face Italy on Friday, according to De Standaard.

The outlet reports the Red Devils have hopes of recovering the midfielder ahead of the quarter-finals against Italy, as De Bruyne was substituted with a sprained ankle against Portugal on Sunday.

Eden Hazard fears he has suffered a serious hamstring injury and the tests today will reveal the extent of his problems, as the Real Madrid winger asked to be substituted after 87 minutes last night.

The initial reports were pessimistic regarding the quarter-finals, but De Standaard claims De Bruyne has the best chance of the two to recover in time for the game against the Azzurri.

The Citizens star must wait until tomorrow for the instrumental tests, as his ankle is still swollen from the challenge by Sporting midfielder Joao Palhinha.

The muscle problem of Hazard will be evaluated within the next few hours, but the report from Belgium believes the former Chelsea star will not be back in time for the game against Roberto Mancini’s men.
