Doha, 1 December (EFE).- Romelu Lukaku appeared as the beacon to which Bélgica seized to be in the eighth final, but the greatest goalscorer in the history of his selection -68 lots- went wrong with hasta four clear scoring chances, if he feeds the pitch and feeds Croatia with a sublime Luka Modric who lands in the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup final.
Bélgica was not freed from the presidency that Roberto Martínez assured that they held the derrota against Marruecos. He changed his technique trying to give something different to his team, but it was the wide balls that predominated in the Belgian game. And alas, Kevin de Bruyne can’t carry anything.
In the only match that he threw the ball with a lead on an open field and when it seemed that the options had been closed, he met Mertens, who was behind the goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic sent the ball to arrive in the 13th minute of the game. Esta y centroslaterales satinos sin encontrar rematador -since ‘9’ de inicio Bélgica- fueron los únicos acercamientos in front of a Croatia that played with the marker.
The 0-0 didn’t give them the first place of the group, but yes the clasificación. He played quietly, to the son of a Modric who, without having to make efforts to recibir only the balón, gives him coolness and relaxation at the game of the suyos. And you will win 1-0 in an action that will give you a lot to say.
In the 15th minute, during Belgium’s best chance, Carrasco started to be his second penalty of the tournament. Mal control within the area and in order to despejar pisó in Kramaric. England collegiate Anthony Taylor did not dude and scored the maximum penalty.
Modric doesn’t want to aim at Courtois. Knowing what his partner in Real Madrid is capable of, who in the first part of his selection in the Mundial gave a penalty to Alphonso Davie, but did not have the opportunity to respond. Taylor was at the pantalla to review a posible fuera de juego milimétrico at the start of Lovren with Vertonghen.
Ni la fuera of the semi-automatic game can determine certain science whether the position was legal or not. Mark the lines and decide to rectify with an image that, when shown in video markers, doesn’t sacó de ninguna duda.
And tampoco has altered the rhythm of a plano partition in what Belgium wants to put football. And he didn’t keep it. Until Lukaku appeared as a recurrence. He gave birth, but he failed, and his bottles ended up dying of Belgian hopes.
Roberto Martínez reached the pitch as the maximum goalscorer in the history of the Belgian selection during the descent. Tras llegar lesionado a Catar, lui no tener para más. Y era el todo o nada para los suyos. Con él en el campo, los balones largos ya tenían algo de sentido.
The Belgians have died out, revived by a couple of acercamientos gracias to the ventajas that Lukaku generates and by the need to earn to stay in eighth place. Y Croatia warned. Disparos de Kovacic, Brozovic and Modric who despejó Courtois in his game number 100 with the ‘diablos rojos’.
Belgium replied, but Carrasco primero, with a salvada debajo de Juranovic in the last hour, and Lukaku, who was forced to recover in one place, was able to materialize Belgium’s best chances.
Los Minutes Pasaban y Bélgica veía cómo se le esfumaba el pase a octavos de final, con una Croacia que vivía tranquila, más allá de la tensión propia de que una goal cacaba el scenario por completo. All at the pace of a Modric who is incombustible. He doesn’t take a single step that doesn’t cause a win for his teammates and the experience roll to gain minutes at the watch.
One minute I was looking for less, but it wasn’t much less, Lukaku’s day. A row inside the area in minute 86 he sent it out, four minutes after I didn’t study until the hour of rowing with the Croatian goalkeeper, he was surpassed and in the second minute of the time added Josko Gvardiol le quitó el balón de los pies y, por Subsequently, he fell with the golden generation of Belgian football.
