Eden Hazard sends message to Chelsea FC’s Belgian stars
Eden Hazard reveals his delight at lining up alongside some of his Chelsea FC team-mates for Belgium
Eden Hazard has admitted his excitement about lining up with a host of his Chelsea FC team-mats for Belgium at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
The Belgian Red Devils are preparing for their opening group stage game on Monday night when they take on Panama looking to get their tournament off to a positive start.
Hazard, 27, is one of the key players for both club and country and he has been earning lots of praise for his commanding performances in recent seasons.
The playmaker will be lining up against the likes of Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi in the Belgium squad in Russia this summer.
And Hazard has admitted that he is thrilled to be playing alongside some of his Chelsea FC team-mates at international level and on the biggest stage.
Speaking in an interview with Chelsea FC’s website, Hazard said: “There are many Chelsea players in the team, which is nice to have Thibaut and Michy with me, but we know all our other team-mates very well by now and like I said, we are all just excited and ready to start the tournament now.”
Chelsea FC ended up winning the FA Cup last season thanks to Hazard’s winner in the final at Wembley back in May.
However, Hazard’s future has been a source of speculation this summer because the Blues finished fifth in the Premier League and missed out on qualification for next season’s Champions League.
