At the end of a boring and very poor match, the French team managed to beat Belgium at the last moment to qualify for the quarter-finals (1-0). Didier Deschamps’ Blues were once again very good defensively. On the other hand, the offensive sector was again very disappointing. Even the saving goal was a stroke of luck in Randal Kolo Muani’s favor. But if our French did not really treat us, our Belgian neighbors were not any more spoiled for all that.

After a disappointing group stage that ended with a poor match against Ukraine (0-0), Belgium surprised everyone by presenting a very attacking starting eleven since behind Lukaku, we had Carrasco, Openda, Doku and a De Bruyne repositioned almost in defensive midfield. A system that could have surprised, but which almost pushed France to extra time. Leader of the Red Devils, how did De Bruyne experience this new disappointment against the Blues?

This time it was without seum. “He didn’t miss much. I think we had a plan today and for our team, we did well. We knew that with the qualities of France that we weren’t going to have much possession. We had moments to be dangerous.

Image generation in progress

“When you give France too much space, it’s very difficult to defend against Kylian, Griezmann, Thuram. The coach made the decision to drop back a little and in the end, we didn’t give France too many big chances. That was our plan. Until five minutes from the end, it was a good plan. We’re disappointed, it’s a shame.” The golden generation embodied by KDB has once again missed the mark.
