Cagliari midfielder Radja Nainggolan is frustrated being ignored by Belgium.

Nainggolan admits playing for Cagliari could be counting against him.

"I am not giving up hope. I will fight to get into the team 100 per cent. The national team is full of champions, but I think I deserve my place - maybe not as a starter but in the 23.

"Look at Kevin De Bruyne, he is sitting in the stands at Chelsea but is part of the national team. I have nothing against Kevin - that is just an example. Kevin is a winner and has done a great job.

"But it seems silly to me that you should be called up just because you play for a big club.

"If I'd have signed for Inter, people would have started talking about me for Belgium - but I'm exactly that same player at Cagliari."
