De Bruyne reveals what was changed after half time.

Belgium

beat

Denmark

with a comfortable 4-2 result. Belgium’s performance was different in the second half.

Youri Tielemans

put Belgium ahead but Jonas Wind leveled and

Martin Braithwaite

should have scored another in a first half in which

Denmark

was the better side.

However,

Martinez

's side showed more courage in the second half and took all three points.

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."
