Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has welcomed Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne to training.

De Bruyne joined the Euros squad on Monday after undergoing minor facial surgery.

"It is fantastic that Kevin De Bruyne has joined the squad. He looks fresh and clear, and just watching him walk down the dining room was a big highlight today," Martinez said.

"He must be seen by the medical staff in the next few days, and as soon as he gets the green light, he will be integrated into the sporting preparations.

"Right now I do not expect Kevin for the first match, but that may change if he handles his own program well. It's too early to decide if he's playing."

Belgium meets Denmark on 17 June, before Finland waits on 21 June.
