Belgium began its Euro campaign with a 0-1 defeat against Slovakia. Whose fault is it ?

“When I see the selection, I say to myself ‘I wouldn’t have thought of that’. Maybe it’s a little stroke of genius. And then, if you’re leading 2-0 after 10 minutes, that’s the case. Ultimately, this becomes a bad idea. There, you feel that the match is messing up and Tedesco disappointed me because he did not react quickly,” notes Marc Delire.

And Silvio Proto continues: “The problem wasn’t the left back. Well, he’s the one who played in front of Carrasco. Trossard was absent. »

Didn’t Leandro Trossard’s change in the 74th minute come too late? “I was convinced he was going to be substituted at half-time. I would also have released either Mangala or Onana. I would have moved De Bruyne back and introduced Lois Openda who, with his speed and the space available, could have done something. Tedesco had choices.”

“In the locker room” with Anne Ruwet and Vincenzo Ciuro at the presentation, it is every day at 11 p.m. on RTL play and slightly delayed on RTL Club (11:20 p.m.).

The Red Devils simply got through their first match of this Euro. A surprising and very worrying defeat given the deficiencies shown during this match. The Belgian players are even already up against the wall after Romania’s victory against Ukraine a little earlier this Monday…

This defeat has already caused a lot of talk, particularly in the Belgian media. The daily newspapers - and Le Soir analyzed the meeting and estimated that “our Devils were not up to the task”. “Blinded by the lights of the Euro, the new-look Devils are sprawling on the first step,” they analyze, while admitting that Belgium is already under pressure. “Little success but above all incapable of revolting against the Slovaks, Kevin De Bruyne and his teammates disappointed. There will already be no more room for error on Saturday against Romania.”

“Already in difficulty”

The DH headlined “a nightmare of deja vu”. “This Belgium-Slovakia resembled these moments of déjà vu,” writes the daily in its columns. “Those moments when you feel like you’ve already experienced what happened. Monday, in Frankfurt, we traveled in time between 2002, 2014, 2016, 2021 and 2022. A new opus of Back to the Future. One episode too many with a failed version. The flashbacks went in all directions, without following any chronological order.”

On the international side, the media were not more lenient… The daily L’Équipe was right: “Goals denied to Lukaku and defeat against Slovakia: Belgium misses its entry into the Euro. After two very good actions where the Manchester City player was on the initiative, Jérémy Doku made a mistake on his restart, very close to his area, by putting the ball in the axis. After a first save from the Belgian goalkeeper Koen Casteels, the Slovak striker Ivan Schranz took the ball very well to deceive the Belgian goalkeeper this time.

The situation is the same for another French media. “First drama in this Euro with the surprise defeat of Belgium,” headlined RMC Sports on its website this Monday evening. “The Red Devils tried everything but Slovakia, very solid, did not steal their success. The Belgians, led by a clumsy and unfortunate Romelu Lukaku (two goals disallowed, the second with the intervention of the new connected ball technology) are already finding themselves in difficulty in this group E.”

Lukaku singled out

In Italy and Spain, one man is especially singled out: Romelu Lukaku. “Lukaku misses opportunities and sees two goals canceled by Var,” wrote Gazzetta dello Sport. “Everything, or almost everything, went through Romelu’s feet. He had to fight against himself in front of goal twice. So many occasions where his shortcomings were very present. And when Big Rom managed to deliver the final blow, VAR intervened twice in the second half.”

“The Lukaku drama: two disallowed goals, several misses and the memory of Qatar or the Champions League final,” headlined the media on its website. “Romelu Lukaku’s nightmare in key moments continued in Frankfurt. The Chelsea striker was once again at the heart of Belgium’s surprise defeat against Slovakia (1-0).
