Roberto Martinez says ‘arrogance’ is not the issue for Belgium

Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez says “poor defending” and not “arrogance” was the reason for their 5-2 defeat to Switzerland.

Belgium needed to avoid losing by two goals to join Portugal and England in the UEFA Nations League finals and they looked well on their way after two goals from Thorgan Hazard inside 17 minutes left Switzerland needing to score four.

The comeback began on 26 minutes with a Ricardo Rodriguez penalty before Haris Seferovic scored twice to give Switzerland a 3-2 lead at half-time.
