Eden Hazard is once again facing injury trouble for Belgium.
Thorgan Hazard saw The Red Devils through a 1-0 win over Portugal on Sunday.
Unfortunately, both Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne could miss the quarter-final tie against Italy this week. Both players hobbled off with injuries and are awaiting further assessment.
“It doesn’t look good,” Thibaut Courtois said.
“We will take 48 hours now to assess the situation of the two players. We go back to Belgium now and they will have scans on the injuries tomorrow,” Martinez said at his post-match news conference.Live TV
Hazard was just starting to come into his own in the European Championships after a season full of injuries. There was overrall optimism regarding his involvement throughout the tournament.
But now, his absence paired with that of De Bruyne’s could be dire for Belgium. It is a real shame that Hazard can’t stay fit because when he is at his best, he is unbeatable.
This is Belgium’s best chance at winning a major tournament with the talent they currently possess. Roberto Martinez will have to work his way around the injuries to give Belgium a strong chance against the high-flying Italians.
