BRUSSELS (AP) — Belgium's backup goalie Simon Mignolet has a right-leg injury and will miss Monday's friendly against Luxembourg, although he should be fit for the World Cup.

The Liverpool goalie had to interrupt Saturday's training session and limped off. Since Belgium's No. 1 goalie Thibaut Courtois of Atletico Madrid will only join the squad next week, Belgium coach called up Anderlecht goalie Thomas Kaminski.

Wilmots said in a statement that Mignolet "needs to rest four or five days."

Belgium plays Algeria, South Korea and Russia in Group H at the World Cup in Brazil.
