Selected songs from his press conference

– « This match is a preparation for the World Cup against a nation that needs one more point to reach the play-offs ».

–  » Eden Hazard ? It was already in the coach’s plans to have him play only one game. And this, because he receives little time at Real Madrid. To string together two meetings in such a short time, it would probably not have been a good thing for him ”.

– « Those who are here have the level to be with us. It’s good to throw young people in the bath. But I don’t think the coach will change the whole team either ”.

– “Playing next to De Bruyne or Tielemans doesn’t change the game. I am still in my role, namely the most defensive. And this, even if I went up a few times in the game on Saturday night ”.

– « Sambi Lokonga? He has already made good progress. Going from Belgium to the Premier League is a big step forward. If he needs advice, I’m here ”.

– “It’s historic to play a major tournament for the 5th time. It’s a great performance. But we didn’t celebrate too much. Me, I stayed a little at the stadium with the family. Then I joined the house. In short, I didn’t do anything special ”.

– “A match against the Welsh is never easy. We obviously remember 2016 at the Euro ”.

– « Bale? Everyone knows its quality. He is a top player ”.

– “My objective was to obtain 100 caps. The rest is a bonus ”.

– “The next Euro is in Germany. So why not… I don’t tell myself that in Qatar, it’s over for me. It all depends on whether I still feel good ”.
