Manchester City star and Belgium international Kevin De Bruyne did not understand why he was awarded Man of the Match following his team’s 1-0 win against Canada.
Canada dominated the game against Belgium but failed to convert the numerous chances they had, including a penalty in the first-half.
Belgium struggled to cope with Canada’s press for much of the game but got their win after Michy Batshuayi half-volleyed the ball into the back of the net to clinch the only goal of the game.
In a postgame press conference, De Bruyne admitted: “We didn’t play well enough as a team. I do not know why I won 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.”
