Belgium boss gives Chelsea's Eden Hazard injury update on Twitter

Eden Hazard 2

Eden Hazard of Chelsea and Belgium has received good news.

Belgium boss Marc Wilmots is breathing a sigh of relief after Eden Hazard was given the green light to feature in their second World Cup game.

Hazard was substituted early in the 2-1 win over Algeria, and there were worries in case his participation in upcoming matches could be impacted.

That is reportedly not the situation however, after Hazard missed a small part of a training session yesterday morning to undergo a scan.

Belgian newspaper Nieuwsblade are reporting that Hazard has only sustained a 'bruised toe', and can expect to feature in the Red Devils' next Group H game with Russia.

Their information came from Wilmots himself, who explained via Twitter that the scan was 'preventative', and there is 'no problem' for their next game.

The news is a relief to Belgium fans who lost Christian Benteke ahead of the tournament, and showed struggles against Algeria, in attempting to live up to the expectation around the side.

Hazard is ambitious on a personal level too, and has spoken previously of his desire to emulate the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

If as expected he recovers to full fitness, Belgium can stay confident that they have their star man on board to help them reach the knockout stages with a win against Fabio Capello's side.
