China News Service, November 30th. According to foreign media reports, on the 29th local time, the Belgian football team held a press conference to clarify the recent internal strife that the outside world has been concerned about.
Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said he and his team-mates had a candid exchange at the training ground on Monday.
"I don't see a problem, it's always good to get together and talk, so everyone can share their thoughts," Courtois said. "I think what we can do is be honest because on the pitch we have to be honest. Fighting for each other. So honesty is the most important thing."
Previously, the head star De Bruyne believed in an interview that he felt that the Belgian team could not win the championship because the players were too old.
This remark is suspected to have caused dissatisfaction with teammate Vertonghen.
According to media reports, after the 0:2 loss to Morocco, Hazard, De Bruyne and Vertonghen had a fierce quarrel.
In this regard, Hazard said that he had already talked with De Bruyne.
"He trusts us more than ever, I think he's just saying we're older than we were four years ago, which is true. Everyone's getting older, defenders, midfielders, strikers, goalkeepers. I think De Bruyne Someone who has faith in the team, otherwise he wouldn't be here," Hazard said.
On December 1, Beijing time, the Belgian team will usher in the last opponent Croatia in the group stage.
Hazard hopes that the team can work together: "In two days, it may be our last game, so we have to play with the desire to win. If we work together on the pitch, I think we can beat Croatia. I know it's going to be difficult because every game in this World Cup is tough, but we can do it." (End)
