Nainggolan responds to Belgian critics


Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan took to his official Twitter account to respond to critics in Belgium, who questioned the validity of the Roma man’s injury, which saw him leave the Belgian national team’s training early and return to Rome:

“I have read things such as I was not actually injured with the national team, why not talk to the doctors yourself and check? You’ll see for yourself the problem I had. Sometimes comments from Belgium are drama. I did not train this week and was a risk (for the match against Lazio). I’ve been reading really stupid comments, as a player who has not been in the team recent recently, I would have liked to play to prove I am worthy of the World Cup, that is how I am.”
