After Belgium’s elimination from Euro 2020 on Friday night against Italy (1-2), Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne admitted to playing 90 minutes with an ankle injury contracted against Portugal in round of 16. “I can only say thank you to the medical staff who did a monstrous job to get me back on my feet. It’s amazing that I was able to play for 90 minutes with a tear in my ligament. I did everything to be ready even if I was not at my best level, we tried ”, he confided after the meeting.
