‘It’s over’: Kevin De Bruyne buries conflict with supporters and focuses on France

It’s D-Day, the one that all Red Devils fans have been waiting for for days: Belgium will face France this Monday in the round of 16 of the Euro. In the interview, Kevin De Bruyne appeared confident and focused ahead of the clash against our neighbours.

It is in the shoes of an outsider that Belgium approaches this round of 16 against France. After a disappointing group stage, the Devils have nothing to lose against one of the big favorites of the tournament. “We know that France are favourites. But I think we have the qualities to play a good match. It’s also very hard for them, they have all the pressure, we’re going to try to have a plan, to play a good match, and we’ll try to win“, Kevin De Bruyne confided to Emiliano Bonfigli.

Over the entire group stage, Belgium only conceded one goal, but only scored two. “Defensively, we played well. Even the goal we conceded was a mistake on our part.“, analyzes our captain. “In all three games, when we conceded chances, it was because of individual errors. That means that the defense played well, but also that we defended well as a team, that we didn’t give too much. And when I look at the three games, I think we created chances, but we didn’t score the goals. The first two games, we created enough chances to win easily, but we didn’t score too many. The third game was a little harder, but we had two or three big chances.“, continued the Cityzen.

Against France, we will have to be clinical in front of goal and solid defensively. “Deschamps has already been there for a long time, and he has built a very strong team. They are very careful and you have the qualities to scare all the teams. It’s a great match. France is a great football country, it has always been like that. We will try to have the same status as France, but we must earn something for that“, De Bruyne then said before returning one last time to the conflict with the supporters after the match against Ukraine. “It’s over, now we have to think about France. The supporters will be there to support us, we did our job to give 100%, that’s the only thing we can do“, he concluded.
