Eden Hazard has been in rich form for club and country this season, and no wonder with this accuracy.
Hazard is filmed taking part in a keepy-uppie session with Belgian team-mates Axel Witsel, Jan Vertonghen and Marouane Fellani, before the Chelsea man then turns and pelts the ball at the camera, forming a huge crack in the lens.
The video appears to be a plug of Belgium’s kit for this summer’s World Cup Finals in Brazil. The strip is mostly red with the occasional black and yellow stripes, representing the colours of the nation’s flag. Belgium should easily see themselves make the knock-out rounds of the tournament, as they face Algeria, Russia and South Korea in their group.
Hazard has been in fine form of late for his club Chelsea, and is their top goal-scorer with 14 goals in the Premier League and seven assists. His side face French big-spenders Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League quarter-final second-leg at Stamford bridge tonight, and trail 3-1 on aggregate. The Belgian scored a penalty at Parc des Princes last week to give Chelsea a glimmer of hope.
Hazard has recently been linked with a summer move to the French Champions, as PSG boss Laurent Blanc refused to rule out an approach for Chelsea’s player of the season. The Belgian is likely to challenge Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Manchester City’s Yaya Toure for the PFA Player of the Year title at the end of the month.
