Injured Liverpool pair in doubt for Belgium

Liverpool pair Christian Benteke and Divock Origi have suffered injuries and are doubts for Belgium's friendly with Portugal.

Origi has pulled out of the national squad with a thigh injury while Benteke is also a doubt after suffering a knee complaint.

Belgium national coach Marc Wilmots has called up Everton forward Kevin Mirallas as a replacement for Origi.

Belgium take on the Portuguese in Leiria on Tuesday after the game was moved from Brussels following the terror attacks that killed more than 30 people in the Belgian capital earlier this week.
