“In Belgium, everyone would like to find the Eden of a few years ago and we, in training, we see that it is still there”, assured the Belgian side at a press conference this Saturday.
But Hazard’s lack of playing time with Real is hurting him and he will need time to ramp up. “Getting back into the game without having match rhythm is impossible for a player. The 60 minutes he played on Friday (Editor’s note: 70, in reality) will do him good and he will try to grow in the tournament. He won’t be amazing in the first game but little by little he will rebuild his form and move on.”
This is what all of Belgium hopes for.
