Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini will feature in Belgium's 2014 World Cup qualifier against Croatia on Friday despite his wrist injury.
United's deadline day signing from Everton will wear a protective cast on his wrist in a bid to prevent the midfielder from weeks on the sidelines.
Fellaini missed United's 2-1 Premier League win over Sunderland on Saturday but has been declared fit to play for his country.
An article on United's official website said: "Marouane Fellaini has trained with Belgium wearing a protective cast on his injured wrist.
"Although some reports suggest the midfielder faces an operation and a spell on the sidelines, the deadline-day arrival is due to play in a splint against Croatia and Wales in the World Cup qualifiers."
Belgium are top of Group A with 22 points and are five points clear of Friday's second placed opponents Croatia.
A win for Fellaini's side will guarantee them a place at next summer's finals in Brazil, even before the face a Gareth Bale-less Wales side on Tuesday.
The news will be a boost to United manager David Moyes, who brought the midfielder to Old Trafford from former side Everton for £27.5m.
