Eden Hazard certainly seems to be struggling with his knee problem at the moment.

Belgium go into this summer's World Cup as the 'dark horses' of the competition. The team has plenty of precocious talent in their ranks and the hope will be that Marc Wilmots can bring that all together to creat a unit capable of living up to their sizeable expectations.

If they are to do so one player that needs to be in top form is Chelsea attacking midfielder Eden Hazard. The Belgian is the star player for the team and is coming off the back of an excellent campaign with Chelsea in the Premier League.

However toward the end of the season he certainly struggled with a niggling injury. That was to his calf, but his latest ailment has been his knee.

He was involved in a collision with Jan Vertonghen in training this week and he suffered some damage to his knee. Today the official Facebook page for the Belgium national team has shown Hazard in physiotherapy for what they call his 'slight' injury. However it didn't seem slight to him.

He screamed in pain as the physio attempted to diagnose the issue - a noise that Belgium fans will not wnjoy the sound of.
