INTERVIEWS Jan Vertonghen was given the honor of speaking to the press this afternoon ahead of tomorrow's game against Canada. The Anderlecht defender indicated that his injury is history and that he is ready."
"After I fell out during the warm-up against Antwerp, it was pretty clear that I wouldn't play that week. We then worked towards appearing at the World Cup as fit as possible. That worked out," Vertonghen explained.
"Last Friday, Vertonghen already played 20 minutes in the friendly game against Egypt. "After that match, I felt good. Since then, I've also finished some good training sessions. I feel ok."
Vertonghen will play his 144th international game tomorrow. "But it remains great every time to be able to play for my country. I hope to inspire guys with this and I do think I have succeeded. I think there is a lot more pride in playing for the national team now than when I just started."
