Eden Hazard looked to be in good spirits as he and his Belgium team-mates geared up for their friendly clash with Italy on Friday night.

Having already booked their place at next summer’s Euro 2016 tournament in France, Belgium are now preparing for two friendly games against Spain and Italy in the coming days.

And Hazard appeared to be happy to be distracted from Chelsea’s disastrous start to the season as he had fun in training on Thursday.

Hazard posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Tomorrow Belgium-Italia… ⚽️⚽️ #ninja”

Hazard played the full 90 minutes as Chelsea slumped to their seventh Premier League defeat of the season against Stoke City on Saturday afternoon.

That result left the Blues 16th in the table and just three points above the relegation zone.

Chelsea take on Norwich City at Stamford Bridge in their next Premier League game on 21 November after the international break.
