Eden Hazard had France at his feet during his time with Lille and enjoyed similar acclaim in England after moving to Chelsea. In the meantime, he has also conquered the hearts of his fellow countrymen. Yet while the attacking midfielder’s talent was plain for all to see when he began his Belgium career, it was some time before he began producing his very best form for his country.
A natural born footballer, Hazard is a player who fills stadiums and inspires youngsters to take up the game. Comfortable on the ball, an elusive dribbler and blessed with dazzling skills, he is seemingly immune to pressure, playing the game with remarkable calm and coolness. After a slightly underwhelming FIFA World Cup™ debut at Brazil 2014, Hazard is determined to seize his second chance to shine on the big stage.
