Real Madrid star Courtois slams Belgium following their 2022 World Cup exit (RM)

Courtois was in no mood for excuses when asked about his opinion of Belgium’s elimination.

Real Madrid star Thibaut Courtois has launched a scathing attack on Belgium after their group exit from the 2022 World Cup. The Red Devils finished third in the last World Cup and they were the highest goal-scoring team.

Belgium started the campaign as one of the tournament favourites in Qatar, but Roberto Martinez’s side picked up just four points from three games.

They started the World Cup campaign with a 1-0 victory over Canada but lost to Morocco. They played out a goalless draw in a do-die game against Croatia.

Martinez has already announced he will step down before the start of 2023 as Belgium’s ‘Golden Generation’ failed to live up to expectations.

Courtois was in no mood for excuses when asked about his opinion of Belgium in Qatar with the 30-year-old frustrated by their inconsistency.

“It’s hard to call yourself ‘Golden Generation’ when you don’t win anything”, as per reports from Diario AS.

“We’re not a golden generation, we’re a generation with lots of talent and great players from across Europe.

“We showed in Russia, we are a Belgium that plays good football.

“In this World Cup and Euro 2020 we were not ourselves, it’s embarrassing.

“We’ll see what happens, who stays, and who goes. Football moves fast and in March there are qualifiers for the Euros.

“Now, I’m supporting Spain, and I wish success to my remaining teammates in Qatar.”

Courtois will return for training in the Spanish capital from December 16 onwards.
