Belgium vs Italy: Courtois criticizes teammates after Euro 2020 defeat

Belgium goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, has criticized his teammates following their Euro 2020 quarter-final 2-1 defeat to Italy on Friday night saying they gave Italy their first goal too easily.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper says Roberto Martinez’s men had just two opportunities during the encounter, insisting that Italy deserve to win the match.

Italy defeated Belgium at Allianz Arena to qualify for the last-4, thanks to two goals from Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Insigne, but Lukaku scored a goal but it was not enough.

“This hits hard, but we knew it was going to be a tough game,” Courtois said at his post-match press conference after the game.

“We had two opportunities, but their keeper made a good save and I think we gave the first goal away a bit too easily.

“It really could have gone either way, but Italy deserved to win here.”
