De Bruyne

says that it was not a tactical change that made the difference in the second half but that they showed more guts.

"These countries are in pot one for a reason," said the

Manchester City

star, according to Het Nieuwsblad. "Denmark is just very good at playing football. We played a bit too little football before the break.

"We need to offer more options and try to play from the back, as we did in the second half. It wasn't a matter of adjusting at half-time, it was a matter of having the guts to play the ball. There's a risk involved, but that's not a bad thing.

"We got more time in the game and we started to combine better, which made it easier. It's a shame about the clumsy goals we conceded, as has often been the case in our campaign, but we still won deservedly."
