'I no longer have feeling on the left side of my nose'

During his substitute against Denmark, De Bruyne was not bothered by anything.

"After all, I no longer have feeling on the left side of my nose. That nerve is affected and it can take up to six months for that feeling to return. It's very annoying, but you can play with it."

Before halftime, De Bruyne saw that his team was having a very difficult time with Denmark, who played the first game since the incident with Christian Eriksen, who went into cardiac arrest in the game against Finland last week.

The Dane is feeling well again given the circumstances, but is still in hospital for a check-up.

"You knew it would be difficult because of everything that happened. In the second half we were able to play the ball around calmly and start the action at the right time. I am happy that we showed that we are resilient. important in a tournament," said De Bruyne, who is already certain of a place in the eighth finals with Belgium.
