The Hoops central defender has been recalled by his country after injury scuppered his hopes of being involved in the Euro 2016 Finals in France.
Boyata admitted: “The start of the season was difficult for me, but I worked very hard to return and get back into the team.
“To be included in the Belgium squad feels like a small victory for me.
“Since January, I have played all the games and I feel great.
“The national team have had some injuries and I know that’s why I am back.
“I think Roberto Martinez plays a similar defensive system as Celtic .
“Sometimes we play three at the back at Celtic and I know Martinez likes to play like that, as well.
“I am delighted to be back with Belgium and, hopefully, I can add to my caps total.”
