Commenting upon having lost Nations League semifinal match against France, in spite of having achieved a double advantage by the end of the first half, Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez:

"Preparing for the consolation final match against Italy will be very hard. And that's because losing a game the way we did is like losing twice. Besides, maybe the penalty kick scored by Mbappé wasn't supposed to be called for. Anyway, we have to think about the upcoming World Cup. We're going to face Italy, and we are planning to qualification games afterwards. It's always be prepared, all the time, no exceptions made".
