Kompany forced off as City held

Published Add your comment

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany was forced off with an apparent hamstring strain as Roberto Mancini's men were held to a goalless draw by Dynamo Dresden in Innsbruck.

Kompany pulled up late in the second half of the friendly as a strong City line-up featuring the likes of Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero failed to take their chances against their German opponents.

Vladimir Weiss came closest to breaking the deadlock on the hour mark while trialist striker Mario Jelavic looked to impress Mancini with an energetic second-half display.
