Ma dino: “Belgium is not just Kevin de Bruyne”
11.30 am: Defending champions Portugal want to focus only on Kevin de Bruyne in the 16th European Championship round against Belgium. “We can’t take care of just one player,” Portugal midfielder Joao Moutinho said at the Estadio la Cartuja in Seville on Saturday: “If we give him the space and time of Belgium, he’s even more dangerous.”
Portugal coach Fernando Santos said Sunday’s game would be their first final. He and Ma Dino repeatedly confirmed that they would not give in to an opponent who was particularly strong in attack and had plenty of room to develop. “They scored a lot of goals, but some admit it. We have to try to control their strengths and exploit their weaknesses,” Moutinho said.
