How Mertens didn't start is beyond me, and there were several other quastionable selections aswell
Yeah....classic Martinez side. Mertens is their player of the year yet was on the bench and they suffer from having some good players mixed in with some rubbish ones (Chadli springs to mind). A bit like Wales.
and once again, Lukaku and Hazard went missing when it really mattered.
Hazard wasn't that bad, but he just tried to do to much on his own. The first half he was dominant, but i agree when France scored a lot of them disappeared.
