World Cup We’re also too old in attack – Belgium defender hits back at De Bruyne, Hazard. After their 2-0 World Cup defeat to Morocco on Sunday, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard were retaliated against by Belgium’s Jan Vertonghen.
Romain Saiss and Zakaria Aboukhlal scored goals for Belgium in their victory over Morocco.
In an unexpected statement made before to the match, De Bruyne asserted that Belgium’s golden generation is now too old to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, while Hazard stated that Belgium’s defenders are not the fastest.
In contrast, following Belgium’s loss to Morocco, Vertonghen criticized his team’s offensive unit for producing insufficient opportunities and said that they attack poorly because they are also too elderly.
We attack poorly, I suppose, since we’re also too elderly up front. We didn’t provide adequate opportunities. At the near post, we gave up the identical goal twice, according to Vertonghen.
