Roy Keane slams on ‘imposter’ Joao Felix

Mon 28 June 2021 | 8:38

Belgium has reached the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 by defeating Portugal 1-0 in their Euro 2020 round of 16 match on Sunday thanks to a stunning 42-minute goal by Thorgan Hazard.

Atletico star, Joao Felix, started the game on the bench and came in the 55th-minute to help his side back to the game. However, he became intensely criticized by Keane after the game as he missed a clear scoring chance for his side.

Keane

told

ITV Sport

: “He’s an imposter, your country needs you and he comes on – hit the target!

“£100million? If I was Ronaldo I’d certainly be going after him in the dressing room.”

 

The Portuguese dominated the game in terms of possession and opportunities and had 23 efforts on goal compared with Belgium's six. But it was Belgium who grabbed the only goal of the match.

Portugal boss, Santos, told TVI24 after the game

: "We are disappointed and sad.

"I've got some players crying in the dressing room. They gave everything.

"A defeat is a defeat. I honestly don't have many words to say right now. We all wanted it and we believed in it.

"We had confidence and we were convinced that we could reach the final and win. There is no justice or injustice, we conceded a goal and we could not score."

The coach added: "The players did everything. They gave them what they had and there's nothing to point to them.

"They were tired but found energy to overcome the gap in rest between the teams. But that's no good now, it's just talk."

 

Belgium will face Italy in the quarter-finals of the competition on Friday.
