Vertonghen appeared to reference De Bruyne’s controversial interview.

He said: “In the end we conceded two identical goals on the set piece, twice at the near post. Balls that should never go in.

“The first time we got away well (disallowed for offside), the second time not anymore.

“There’s so much going through my mind right now, things I shouldn’t say in the open air. I don’t think we created any chances. Where did it go wrong?

“We probably also attack badly because we are too old, that must be it now, surely? We have a lot of quality up front, but so does Morocco, and they came out better today. This is very frustrating.”
