Vincent Kompany watches the Belgium-Macedonia match last Friday.

Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany will return from a two-month injury layoff and start for Belgium in Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Macedonia.

Kompany has been training with the main team since Belgium's 2-0 victory over Macedonia last Friday and should regain his spot on the starting lineup at the expense of Bayern Munich veteran Daniel Van Buyten.

Belgium coach Marc Wilmots said Monday that "Kompany is ready for it. He has been training without problem and he has felt no adverse reaction.''

Kompany has been sidelined with a calf injury but said that once he walks into the 50,000-sellout King Baudouin stadium he will have "enough self-confidence to perform.''

Belgium and Croatia currently share the lead in qualifying group A.
