Watford defender Christian Kabasele has been added to the Belgium squad for their World Cup qualifiers with Bosnia and Cyprus, as a just reward for his form with the Hornets.

26-year-old Kabasele has enjoyed a run in the Hornets side over the past five league games, keeping clean sheets against Southampton and Brighton.

He replaces injured Lazio defender Jordan Lukaku, brother of Manchester United striker Romelu.

Kabasele has a sole cap for his country to date, replacing Vincent Kompany in their starting line-up against the Netherlands in November last year when the Manchester City captain pulled up with an injury during the warm-up.

Belgium have already sealed qualification for next year's World Cup and hold an eight-point lead over second-placed Bosnia with two games to go. They have won seven and drawn one of their eight qualifiers.
