Courtois: France are an Anti-Football Team

Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois accused France of playing “anti-football” during his side’s World Cup semi-final loss on Tuesday.

Samuel Umtiti’s 51st-minute header saw France win 1-0 in St Petersburg , booking a spot in Sunday’s final for Didier Deschamps’ men.

Belgium struggled to create many chances after a bright start as they were left frustrated by a compact France outfit.

Courtois blasted Les Bleus – who moved into a third World Cup final – for their tactics.

“It’s just an anti-football team,” Courtois told Sporza .

“Their striker plays 30 metres from his own goal.”

Belgium booked their spot in the semi-final by upsetting favourites Brazil in the last eight.

But Courtois said he would have preferred to lose to Tite’s men, praising their approach.
