Jan Vertonghen has revealed this disappointment after being ruled out for the remainder of Euro2016.
The Tottenham defender sustained torn ankle ligaments late in Belgium's final training session in preparation for Friday night's quarter-final clash with Wales.
The injury will force the 29-year-old out of the final eight fixture, as well as any other matches provided Belgium advance, and he was understandably devastated by the outcome.
Gutted to say that my Euros is over. Good luck to my teammates for the rest of the competition

Oostende's Jordan Lukaku will most likely replacement Vertonghen, who has started all four of Belgium's Euro matches at left-back, while Manchester City's Jason Denayer will step into the centre-back position vacated by Thomas Vermaelen's suspension.
