The winger suffered the problem during a training session ahead
of the Premier League encounter with Stoke City and missed the
2-1 victory.

He travelled to Belgium on Monday as head coach Roberto
Martinez was hopeful the attacker could play a role for the
national team, but the 26-year-old is now due to return to
Chelsea for further treatment.

“Eden’s absence is obviously a big blow, but it will be
interesting to see how we deal with it,” Martinez said at a
news conference.

“Eden suffered a calf injury the day before the game against
Stoke. It does not appear to be too bad based on the
information Chelsea gave us. Eden came to Belgium on Monday,
but he will not remain with the group.

“Of course, this will be a disappointment for him. He is a very
professional captain. But injuries are part of the game. A big
test awaits without Eden.”

Belgium top Group H with 12 points from four games, two points
clear of Greece.
