Machester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is ready to declare himself fit ahead of their quarterfinal clash in the Euro 2020.
De Bruyne who picked a knock in Belgium's last game in the competition has his country facing Italy in the quarters on Friday with the player unlikely to be 100% fit.
According to De Morgen, the player considers the game an important match for his country and would make himself available for his coach as they seek to make it to the semi-final at the expense of one of the favourites in the tournament.
The report claims that de Bruyne is ready to declare himself available, even if he needs to have pain injections in order to be involved against the Italians.
Apart from De Bruyne it remains to be seen if Eden Hazard will be available for the game too having picked an injury in their last game with head coach Roberto Martinez having some selection headache to make.
