Chelsea Keeper exits Euro 2016 with 3 clean sheets

Thibault Courtois

The EURO 2016 journey for Belgium has ended, courtesy of a jubilant Wales side who triumphed 3-1 in an absolute of a shocker. Before the match, odds were heavily in Belgium’s favour, after their 4-0 win against Hungary.

It was another disappointing match for Thibaut Courtois, as he was unable to stop the high-flying Wales National Team, which came from behind after conceding an early goal. Courtois showed his brilliance in the first half by making some amazing saves to deny Wales the lead, but couldn’t prevent them from scoring 2 in the latter half.

Courtois might have done a bit to save his team if he got even a little help from his defenders, as in the first goal Ashley Williams was left unmarked, in the second goal Robson-Kanu’s brilliance fooled 3 Belgian defenders and the third goal was scored from a header by the sole Welsh player in the box surrounded by 2 Belgian defenders.

Courtois managed to keep 3 clean sheets from Belgium’s 5 games in EURO while conceding 5 in the other two. The Chelsea shot-stopper failed to deliver when his team needed him to make the crucial saves.

Now what stands for the Belgian player is to make a decision over his Chelsea future, whether or not he is going to continue at the Stanford Bridge.
