Belgium captain Kevin De Bruyne slams his own World Cup Man of the Match award vs Canada

Kevin De Bruyne claims he “doesn’t know” why he was named Man of the Match against Canada, alleging he was chosen only because of his name. The humbling confession was the latest strange moment from a World Cup unlike any other, as Belgium edged through their Group F opponents in Doha due to Michy Batshuayi’s first-half goal.InformationGuideNigeria

Belgium were virtually underdogs from the start, unable to find their scoring boots as their World Cup barren run extended 36 years after their previous appearance in a finals.

Bayern Munich’s left-back Thibaut Courtois saved an early penalty for Alphonso Davies, and the Real Madrid goalkeeper was put into a number of spectacular saves to preserve Canada from scoring.JAMB Portal

This was far from De Bruyne’s best performance, as he failed to find any connection with Belgium’s unimpressive frontline, which was without the injured Romelu Lukaku.
