Injury scare for key Wolves star on international duty as Chelsea loom
One of the minor downsides to Wolves ’ remarkable progress over the last coupleof years has been the increased workload on their players.
It seems virtually every member of Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad is away somewhere on international duty – with the indefatiguable Raul Jimenez having to travel huge distances to represent Mexico.
And then there’s the risk of injury while away on national service.
Unfortunately Leander Dendoncker has fallen victim with Belgium boss Roberto Martinez confirming a knock in training which will rule the midfielder out of this evening’s Euro 2020 qualifier.

Wolves will certainly hope that’s the case – or perhaps even prefer the 24-year-old to sit out altogether given the fact he has been a crucial player this season.
Dendoncker has played ten times so far this term, scoring the winner in the Europa League qualifier against Torino and will hope to continue that run against Chelsea next weekend.
One player definitely out of that match is Willy Boly, who is suspended following his sending off at Everton.
The centre half has though been called up to the Ivory Coast squad for their games against Benin and Tunisia.
