DEDRYCK BOYATA is poised to follow Celtic team-mates Mikael Lustig and Cristian Gamboa to the World Cup Finals in Russia in the summer.
The Belgian central defender has been named in his nation’s 28-man provisional squad, but manager Roberto Martinez still has to trim the pool by five players on June 2 after a friendly against Portugal.
However, the Hoops star is likely to make the cut and join Sweden’s Lustig and Costa Rica’s Gamboa at the football extravaganza.
Midfielder Tom Rogic is also due to travel when Australia announce their final group.
The Belgians kick off with a game against Panama before taking on Tunisia and finishing their group with a clash with England.
