Belgium through rough time

THE cracks are showing in the Belgium team as they head home in shame.

The first scary signs were there when several members of Belgium’s World Cup squad reportedly paid for their own flights home from Qatar, rather than travelling back with the rest of the team as planned.

After labouring to a 1-0 victory over Canada in their opening match, things got worse for the Belgians with a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Morocco.

Jan Vertonghen took a swipe at his captain when speaking to the media after the match, mockingly suggesting: “We probably also attack badly because we are too old, that must be it now, surely?”
