World Cup: De Bruyne, Hazard clash in dressing room after shock Morocco defeat
A number of Belgium players were involved in a dressing room bust-up after their shock 2-0 defeat to Morocco at the 2022 World Cup.
According to RTL Sport, Kevin de Bruyne, Jan Vertonghen, and captain Eden Hazard clashed after the match.
Tensions were already high after De Bruyne told reporters before the game that the team was “probably too old” to win the trophy.
Those tensions now appear to have reached a boiling point, as the three players let their tempers erupt following the loss.
It is understood that De Bruyne, Hazard, and Vertonghen had to be separated by Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.
The emotionally charged changing room could prove disastrous ahead of their final group stage fixture against Croatia.
