Belgium have beaten Poland for their second game in the A4 group of the Nations League. Five days after the debacle against the Netherlands, the Devils showed a completely different face. Much more conquering.
They also showed character and didn’t lose their footing after the opener in Robert Lewandowski. Axel Witsel equalized before the break. Kevin De Bruyne, Leandro Trossard twice, Leander Dendoncker and Lois Openda made the difference in the second period (6-1).
The slap orange pricked the Devils in their pride. The expected reaction took place. There is a change in the eleven (Dendoncker, Carrasco, Tielemans, Batshuayi) but also in the attitude.
No way to stay with the bitter taste of this performance. And to erase it nothing better than to seize the leather. Possession is more fluid, also facilitated by Polish pressing that is less oppressive than that of the Dutch.
