Belgium has lots of talents

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said that the team has a lot of young talents and that there is no doubt that they will come back stronger for the next tournament. He was speaking after the match where his side was beaten 1-0 by France.

He said that it was a disappointing result and that they were hoping that they could reach the final after having a great tournament. Indeed Belgium managed to eliminate Brazil in the last round and was hoping that this time around they could win the first major tournament of their history.

Roberto Martinez said that the objective of the team at the start of the tournament was to try and win it and this is why there is some disappointment in the dressing room. He believes that he had the players to achieve it and that unfortunately, these kinds of defeat happen in football.

He said that fans should not be discouraged as Belgium has plenty of young talents that will become better with the experience they have gained at this tournament. He believes that the players will become even better and that they will be tough to beat at the next major tournament.

Roberto Martinez said that it has been a magnificent performance from his team in this World Cup and that they will like to end the competition by beating England in their final game of the tournament. He said that this will be different from their first meeting as the last one was after both teams qualified for the knock-out stage.

He said that now it is up to the players to find the motivation after being beaten in the semi-final in order to win this game. He said that England will be a difficult opponent as they will also want to finish their tournament with a win.
