Romelu Lukaku took his anger out on a dugout window after Belgium crashed out of the World Cup in Qatar.
The Chelsea striker, currently on loan at Inter Milan, missed several chances as Belgium were held to a goalless draw by Croatia in their final group game.
For Lukaku’s first missed chance, Carrasco stormed through on goal before his path was blocked and the ball found its way to Lukaku who somehow hit the post with the goal gaping.
He then inexplicably headed over from close range, although replays showed De Bruyne had probably taken the ball out of play before crossing.
The result ensures Belgium who came third in Russia four years ago finished third in Group F and exits the World Cup before the knockout stages.
Lukaku broke down in tears after the final whistle and was consoled by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, who is part of Martinez’s coaching team in Qatar.
But the striker’s sorrow soon turned to anger as he punched a dugout window on his way back to the dressing room, dislodging a piece of glass in the process.
And with Morocco beating Canada 2-1 in the other game in Group F, Belgium became aware they needed to find a late goal against the Croats as the contest headed for a stalemate.
They had several good opportunities in the dying moments including the ones that fell to Lukaku but could not find a winner, and crashed out of the World Cup as a result.
Lukaku, who came into the tournament carrying an injury, showed his frustration after the game, punching the side of the dugout destroying it in the process.
BBC pundits Didier Drogba and Alan Shearer were sympathetic to Lukaku who attempted to save his team despite not being fully fit.
While Belgium is heading home, 2018 runners-up Croatia secured the point they needed to progress as Group F runners-up, as Morocco sealed the top spot with a 2-1 win over Canada.
Belgium secured a narrow win over Canada in their first game of the World Cup before suffering a shock defeat to Morocco.
Roberto Martinez’s side, currently ranked No. 2 in the world, produced another lackluster display against Croatia when a win would have sent them through to the last 16.
Lukaku, who struggled last season following a £97.5m move to Stamford Bridge, missed numerous chances to send his country through after coming on as a half-time substitute.
Chelsea’s record signing struck the post, headed over, poked wide, and reacted too late when presented with virtually an open goal in stoppage time.
A lot has been made of Belgium’s “golden generation”, a collection of prodigious talents from the biggest clubs, who have perennially been among the favourites at international tournaments for the best part of a decade.
Yet they have never tasted glory and with the brightest lights, such as Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne, already north of 30, it is unlikely they will get another chance at the World Cup.
However, Belgium boss Martinez, who later confirmed he was resigning, said: ‘It’s not easy to win games in the World Cup. We weren’t ourselves in the first game we had a deserved defeat in the second game’.
What’s next for Lukaku?
The Belgian forward will return to club action with Inter after his nation’s exit from the tournament in Qatar. He is also likely to return to Chelsea after his loan spell at the end of this season.
