Tiktukno: summary of today's events in sports, 28.11 (Sport1)
Stormy in the Belgium team.
After the local media dealt with the picture that revealed the disconnection between Kevin de Brauna and the rest of the players, this evening (Monday) it was reported in "RTL" that yesterday a stormy confrontation took place between de Brauna and two other players who are considered pillars of the team: Eden Hazard and Jan Vertonghen.
"Romelo Lukaku had to separate them," it said.
The Red Devils got into trouble yesterday in group 6 in the World Cup following a surprising 2:0 loss to Morocco, which kept Roberto Martinez and his players out of the round of 16 of the World Cup.
In Belgium they claim that "the atmosphere in the dressing room is at a low ebb" - something that was also said by Martins himself, and today a "crisis conversation" was even held in the training complex.
It was also reported that there is a disconnect between quite a few players in the squad: "De Brauna and Thibaut Courtois have not spoken to each other for years, for personal reasons. Michy Batshuayi and Lukaku are not the best of friends either. Eden Hazard and Andrew Trussard do not speak to each other."
He was also involved in the confrontation.

Belgium will play Croatia on Thursday, with a must win to avoid a shocking elimination in the group stage, and in the event of a draw will depend on Canada defeating Morocco.
A loss, of course, and she will end her journey in the World Cup.
