World Cup: Look yourselves in the mirror – Jermaine Jenas tells Belgium players

Former Tottenham forward, Jermaine Jenas has told Belgium players that they caused their own downfall in Qatar.

Belgium could not make it out of the Group F of the ongoing World Cup, with their goalless draw with Croatia on Thursday confirming their early exit.

African side, Morocco finished top of the group on seven points with Croatia coming behind on 5.

The results left Belgium stars such as Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Toby Alderweireld and Timothy Castagne dejected.

But Jenas noted that Belgium’s campaign as a whole has not been good enough.

“They threw everything at it in the end but the experience of this Croatia side just about got them over the line,” Jenas told ITV

“Distraught players in that Belgium side but when they look at themselves in the mirror, they’ll realise it just was not good enough and that is why they’re out.”
