Thomas Kaminski has been called into the Belgian squad ahead of their upcoming Nations League double-header.

The Rovers ‘keeper has enjoyed a fine start to life at Ewood Park, keeping three consecutive clean sheets, and impressing between the sticks since his move from AA Gent for an undisclosed fee.

Kaminski has been called up as a replacement for Anderlecht stopper Hendrik Van Crombrugge who the national team say has left the camp to be with his wife and son.

It will be the third time in his career that the uncapped Kaminski will join up with Belgium’s senior squad.

The 27-year-old, the first Belgian to represent Rovers, is uncapped, but has represented his country at every age group from Under-15s and Under-21s.

Belgium are currently top of their Nations League group and face a double header against England (October 11) and Iceland (October 14).

Roberto Martinez's side drew 1-1 with Ivory Coast last night, in which former Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, now with Club Brugge was between the sticks, and captained the side.

Koen Casteels, of Wolfsburg, is the other goalkeeper currently in the squad, with Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois having withdrawn after failing a fitness test.

Kaminski, who won't be bound by any quarantine restrictions, will join up with the rest of his team-mates tomorrow.

He is the third Rovers player to be away on international duty, alongside Corry Evans (Northern Ireland) and Derrick Williams (Republic of Ireland).
