Toby Alderweireld has sent an upbeat Twitter message from the Belgian camp on Sunday afternoon, one week before the Premier League clash with Chelsea.
He posted images of him in training with his national aide ahead of their game with Saudi Arabia on Tuesday night.
He said he was “all smiles” and used the #RedTogether hashtag at the end of the message.

Alderweireld is the subject of feverish speculation as his future at Tottenham is still in doubt.
The latest report from Belgian outlet HNL claimed that Tottenham had given up on him signing a contract extension and were prepared to sell him for £44million in the summer.
However, fans will be hoping that if he plays for Belgium, that he’ll be in line for a Premier League return against Chelsea on Sunday.
Football Insider verdict:
There are two Toby Alderweirelds at the moment. The one who plays for Tottenham is a hermit, rarely seen, injured and the subject of a mass of speculation. Will he leave in the summer? If the latest report is to be believed he’s as good as gone already. Then there’s the one who plays for Belgium. He’s “all smiles” and is training in preparation for an international game on Tuesday. His manager Roberto Martinez said he was completely fit and ready to play, which might lead Tottenham fans to thinking the worst.
