‘Romelu Lukaku forced to separate ‘Belgium trio Kevin de Bruyne, Jan Vertonghen and captain Eden Hazard who Clashed’ in dressing room after shock Morocco defeat

After their most recent World Cup loss, top players Kevin de Bruyne, Jan Vertonghen, and captain Eden Hazard were reported to have gotten into a scuffle in the team’s locker room.

Sunday’s shocking 2-0 group stage victory by Morocco over Belgium in Qatar touched a chord with the Belgian squad, as violent altercations amongst teammates reportedly had to be broken up after the match.

Tensions were already elevated after Manchester City star De Bruyne warned reporters prior to the game that Belgium were “probably too old” to win the World Cup.

According to RTL Sport, these tensions appear to have reached a boiling point when three national team veterans lost their cool during Roberto Martinez’s team’s humiliating loss.

6 feet 3 inches on loan Romelu Lukaku had to separate his colleagues as desperate players attempted to restore order inside the Al Thumama stadium.

As World Cup champions, the nation’s “golden generation” arrived in Qatar determined to realize their full potential. Unfortunately, team cohesion looks to be an obstacle in their pursuit of success.

The tense atmosphere in the locker room amongst some of the team’s most recognizable players might be devastating ahead of their last group stage match against 2018 World Cup finalist Croatia.

The 35-year-old Vertonghen was plainly irritated with De Bruyne following their shocking loss, as he told reporters, “We probably also attack badly because we are too old, that must be it now, surely?

“We have a lot of quality up front, but so does Morocco, and they came out better. This is very frustrating.”

Belgian sports media have also criticized De Bruyne when film emerged revealing he was the lone player not to embrace teammates after their pre-match statement against Morocco.

Belgium is now in top spot in Group F and must defeat the Eastern European nation on Thursday at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium.
