Martinez: Belgium Deserved To Beat England, We Must Be Ready For Japan

Belgian coach Roberto Martinez has stated that his side were deserving of their win against England in their final Group G game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Thursday night.

A brilliant strike from Adnan Januzaj secured the win for Belgium who finished top of the group on nine points, three points ahead of England in second position.

“The victory is a consequence of a very good performance. You cannot plan the ideal scenario, you’ve seen big nations already eliminated,” Martinez said in his post-match press conference.

And ahead of their round of 16 encounter against Japan, Martinez said they must be at their very best.

“We need to look at ourselves, we are a stronger group than we were before the game. We’re facing Japan, we’ve got to be ready for it.”
