Manchester United legend Roy Keane was left raging at Joao Felix following Portugal’s exit from Euro 2020.
The defending champions had their defence of the Henri Delaunay trophy ended by Belgium, who beat them 1-0 in Seville.
Hazard’s long-range effort was all that separated the two sides in a match where Portugal had more clear-cut opportunities.
Diogo Jota had two great chances, Ruben Dias’ powerful header was saved by Thibaut Courtois, while Felix had his fair share of chances.
The Athletico Madrid star only entered the fray in the 56th minute but Keane suggested Felix ought to shoulder a lot of the blame for the defeat.
Keane also called on Portugal captain and former teammate at Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo, to ‘go after’ the 21-year-old in the changing room.
On Felix, a furious Keane told ITV Sport: “He’s an imposter, your country needs you and he comes on – hit the target!
“£100million? If I was Ronaldo I’d certainly be going after him in the dressing room.”
The result means Belgium will play Italy in Munich on July 2, a match you can listen to LIVE on talkSPORT.
However, the Red Devils may have to play without two of their best known players, with both Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard hobbling off in the second half with ankle and hamstring injuries respectively.
