Brussels - Belgium named its squad for the Euro 2016 qualifier with Wales and a friendly with tournament hosts France on Friday, with Chelsea's Premier League player of the year Eden Hazard at the heart of Marc Wilmots' group.

Belgium however left Manchester City's defensive rock Vincent Kompany out of the squad as he is suspended for the clash with Wales on June 12. The Red Devils take on France in a friendly a week earlier.

Wilmots also left out any player from freshly crowned Belgian champions Gent, with just six home-based players on the list.
