Real Madrid goalkeeper Courtois blasts Belgian press: It's always the same with you!

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois hit out a Belgian reporters after defeat to Holland.

The Oranje were able to beat Belgium 1-0 in last night's Nations League encounter.

Afterwards, Belgium No1 Courtois snapped: "It's always the same with you, the press.

“After every game, conclusions should be made as 'hopeful' and 'encouraging'. Look, the World Cup is only two months away. Everything is possible there. Sure, we're not playing our best game, but it wasn't the kind of thing to worry about or to read on Monday that everything was bad.

“We are playing against the team that beat us 1-4 in Brussels", continues Courtois. “It's a shame we missed the efficiency, so we lost 1-0. But we should certainly not be dramatic about this result. These matches are just to get us ready for the World Cup. That's where it has to happen."
