Belgium Star De Bruyne Questions His Man of the Match Award
Belgium defeated Canada 1-0 and as a result of this win, De Bruyne was given the official award for the Man of the Match. This was a surprise to the player as he expressed confusion on how he earned the award.
He stated to reporters, “I don't think I played a great game. I don't know why I have got the trophy," and added, “"It wasn't good enough, but we know what to change. The precision was lacking, also with me. There was fighting spirit, that is a minimum requirement. A first match like this at a major tournament is always special. I was not stressed, but I can only speak for myself. We made it difficult for ourselves and that caused stress in the team."
After this tight win, Belgium is aiming for a better performance in their match against Morocco on Sunday.
