Dont think well hit 2nd, Sweden were poor. Were still the same shower that got humiliated in the Euros and got schooled by the Germans on how to play football.

We won 0-2 against Macedonia, but, frankly, we didn't play well at all. Especially the first half, the team underperformed and left way too much space for the Macedonians. We also played so very slow pfff. Fortunately, we had our fair share of luck and, especially, we had Thibaut Courtois. That guy, only 20, will become a phenomenal goalkeeper, mark my words. Anyway, the second half we played better and controlled the game.
Best players yesterday were Courtois, Vermaelen (captain in absence of Kompany), Witsel and Hazard (who caused and scored the penalty of the second goal). Not so good: Fellaini, Benteke, Dembele, Vertonghen and Van Buyten. Neutral: De Bruyne (scored first goal), Alderweireld.

It's going to be between us and Croatia now. I still think Croatia are the better team, tbh.
October 11, Croatia-Belgium: that'll be the decisive game.

Thibaut Courtois is amazing. Chelsea will be fools to let him go. He will be the best keeper in the world one day.

He was a very good hurler. Must of thought he scored at least a point

He is a top 5 lock for best goalkeepers for the next 10 years, right up there with Hart and Neuer.

yeah, I wonder how long Chelsea will go on with Cech? You say one year, but in the end, he's only 31 years old. For a goalkeeper, that's not so old.

I'm quite sure he will be. The presence he has in his goal area, the sublime reflexes,.... Simon Mignolet, our second choice, also is a great goalkeeper, but Courtois simply is one class better still.
