Rashford defeated by Courtois ‘again!’


Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford was frustrated with his fluffed chance in England’s defeat to Belgium.

England finished second in Group G after the loss in Kaliningrad and will now face Colombia in the last-16.

Rashford was put through one-on-one with Thibaut Courtois but the Chelsea stopper touched his effort around the post.

Rashford said: “It’s not the first time it’s happened against him.

“I know that he comes out fast and spreads himself very big when he comes out.

“I think if I’d kept it on the floor and get a bit of extra detail on the finish it maybe has the chance of going in the far post.

“But I lifted it and he got a finger tip to it.”

He added: “I wouldn’t say [the defeat is a] reality check. We know it’s early on in the process of what we’re trying to do, but this is just a chance to try and prove it today.

“It was difficult today but we have an opportunity now to improve in the days of training before the next game.”
