We Were Better Than France– Courtios

Belgium and Chelsea goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has claimed that his side was the better team on the night despite going down 1-0 to France in the World Cup semi-finals.

Samuel Umtiti’s header was the only goal needed for France to make it through to the Moscow final on Sunday.

Courtois snapped: “I wouldn’t say the team in front of us was better than us.

“The team in front of us has defended well with 11 players 35 meters before their goal. And they’ve done this the whole tournament. Against Uruguay they score with a free kick. Today a goal from a corner. Pity, but that’s football.

“It depends on the details. Every team plays to their strengths. Our strength lies with playing football. Their strength is defending and counter-attacking with (Kylian) Mbappé who is very fast. But it’s a shame, you see.

“France know very well we have a lot of trouble with teams who play very low on the field. But when it’s Panama or similar teams, you know you still have a chance of scoring.

“Today it was very difficult to defeat the defensive line of France.”
