Kevin de Bruyne Claims He Does NOT Understand Why He Was Awarded The Man Of the Match’ In 1-0 Win Against Canada

Belgium midfielder star Kevin de Bruyne admits Belgium ‘did not play a good game in the Group F clash.

He did not understand why he was awarded Man of the Match following his team’s 1-0 win over Canada.

It was a frustrating defeat for the Maple Leafs as they dominated the game but failed to take advantage of a penalty as Alphonso Davies’ effort from the spot was saved by Thibault Courtois.

Belgium was nearly steamrollered by a tram intent on pressing the life out of them but was rescued by an otherwise ineffectual Michy Batshuayi as he half-volleyed the ball into the back of the net to clinch the only goal of the match.

Still, it was neither Belgium’s goalscorer nor goal saver that was granted the honor of being awarded Man of the Match.

Instead, it was De Bruyne who had some brilliantly driving runs from deep but too often his final shot resulted in nothing.

And even the midfielder himself was shocked at being given the award.

In the postgame press conference, De Bruyne admitted: “We didn’t play well enough as a team. I do not know why I won the man of the match, maybe because of my name.

“Credit to Canada. We could not get through their press, we did not play a good game today, me included but we found a way to win.”

According to this result, Roberto Martinez’s side topped Group F after Morocco and Croatia split points in the previous match on Thursday.

Belgium will take on Morocco, while the Canadians will look to come up against Croatia in search of their first World Cup goal.
