Eden Hazard came on for roughly the last 15 minutes of the game, but his mouth-watering cameo against Russia drew plaudits from lots of fans. Belgium ran out 3-0 winners against Russia, with Romelu Lukaku managing to score a brace.
The Real Madrid forward looks not ready to start games yet but he was fit for a second-half cameo.
In just few minutes of the closing stages that the Belgian no 10 made an appearance, he was able to put in an impressive shift – winning 4 out of 5 duels, completing 3 out of 4 dribbles, and making 18 touches.
Hazard made a mouth-watering cameo at Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg that reminds us of the classical Eden Hazard, dribbling past three opposition players;
The former Chelsea winger moves backwards as he can’t find an opening
Plus a Russia forward came closer, making things even more difficult for Eden
Hence, passing backwards or sideways is the easiest option – but Hazard suddenly bursts forward, leaving two opposition players behind him
Then Approaches another player…
And nutmegs him!
After his excellent display, Real Madrid and Chelsea fans were extremely happy to see Eden Hazard coming back to life after a disappointing season!
