Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen admits Belgium struggled to break down France for last night’s World Cup semifinal defeat. Afterwards, Vertonghen said: “We knew that it would be difficult to defeat them.
“We had a couple of chances, but against this French team one has to score and we did not. They have good centre-backs, N’Golo Kante, Paul Pogba and Blaise Matuidi in front of them and they are very good defensively.
“I’m disappointed now but still proud of what we did.”
