Chelsea and Belgium international goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has revealed that he thinks Belgium have been lucky enough to receive an ‘easy’ team in the first knock-out round of the European Championship.
Belgium will play Hungary in the last 16 round and have managed to avoid favourites of the group Portugal.
“We have to admit that we have an ‘easy’ half of the draw because obviously all the teams that are there deserve it but there are no big teams like Spain, France or Italy.”
However, Courtois told RTBF that his team will not underestimate Hungary after they topped their group with considerable ease.
“Of course we have to do everything but Hungary had three good matches and they are first in their group.
“We will be favourites in this match but we’ll have to be careful because they’re going to play defensively and we’ll have to be focused from the start.”
