THIBAUT COURTOIS got embroiled in a row with a YouTuber – just hours after getting down on one knee to propose to his stunning Wag.
Manchester United fan and YouTuber Mark Goldbridge was incredulous at his side's goalkeeper David de Gea missing out on the Spain squad – pointing to Courtois' recent success to rubbish Luis Enrique's reasoning.
The Spain boss was asked about De Gea after he left the experienced stopper out in favour of selecting Unai Simon, David Raya and Robert Sanchez.
Enrique, 52, explained: "I look to have three starting goalkeepers and I think that right now I have them. Honestly. I wouldn’t have an issue with any of the three of them starting.
"Unai has accumulated some interesting experience. A goalkeeper should start the play and generate the first superiority, they must dominate the aerial play.
"I need a goalkeeper that transmits peace and calmness to me – and that doesn’t mean they won’t make mistakes, errors are part of football. But what they generate I like a lot."

Goldbridge took Enrique's comments to suggest that De Gea lacks ability with his feet.
He tweeted to his 458,800 followers: "All these Enrique quotes about De Gea… Dave just won players' player of the year.
"Courtois won man of the match in a UCL final and isn't quick off his line or good with his feet.
"A keeper's first job is to save goals and we have one of the best in the business."

Amazingly, Courtois responded to Goldbridge's tweet with three pictures of him claiming crosses in the Champions League final and a "shrug" emoji.
Another fan responded to Courtois, writing: "When you play behind Maguire, Lindelof, Telles n Dalot and you kept 5 clean sheet, come back and brag. For now shushhhhhhhh! @thibautcourtois."
Courtois, 30, replied: "I was just answering the fact, that I don’t collect crosses. I would never talk bad about another goalie."
Goldbridge then piped up again, tweeting: "I was actually talking about sweeper keeping and ball distribution.
"Some to value it over actual shot stopping. Which is what I was highlighting with you and De Gea."
This drew another response from the Real Madrid goalkeeper, who wrote: "Well, it still just shows you haven’t watched me play since I left Chelsea.
"As this year all the build up starts with me. I am not the best, but certainly not how you put me down😂"
Goldbridge again tried to explain his initial tweet, writing: "My point was you are arguably the best keeper in the world and aren't considered to be a sweeper keeper.
"You're a shot stopper like De Gea. And Madrid won the UCL because of it. Not because you can pass."
I played a great game and that was the difference
The timing of Courtois' tweets was somewhat bizarre, coming just hours after he proposed to partner Mishel Gerzig on a yacht.
The Israeli supermodel said yes, before writing on social media: "Yessss to a lifetime with you."
It turned out the first part of life with Courtois was watching him tweeting at a YouTuber.
Courtois has been vocal in defending himself recently, even demanding people put "respect on his name" after producing a sensational man of the match performance in his side's 1-0 Champions League final victory over Liverpool.
He told BT Sport: "I saw a lot of criticism after a great season that I was not good enough. I'm just really proud of the performance from the team and when I needed to be there I was there for the team.
