Eden & Thorgan Hazard Pull Out of Belgium Squad


Eden Hazard will not feature in Belgium's upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers as expected, with brother Thorgan also absent this week.

The elder Hazard is yet to make his competitive debut for Real Madrid following a €100 million (£88m/$112m) move from Chelsea, having sustained a thigh injury on the eve of the new La Liga season.

Despite missing the first few weeks of the campaign, the 28-year-old was still named in Belgium's squad for the first international break of the season, although head coach Roberto Martinez insisted he would “not take any risks" and that a decision on his role would be made early this week.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane subsequently announced Hazard would not be fit to feature for his country against San Marino and Scotland, telling reporters last week: "He can travel with the Belgium squad, he can be seen by the Belgian team doctor, but he's not fit to play right now."
