Hazard, the forward for Real Madrid talked about his situation at the team and his intentions for the World Cup.
Eden Hazard has not seen the same level of success with the Galacticos since leaving Chelsea in 2019. His performance in the Premier League has been greatly decreased by injury and inconsistency. The 31-year-old has played just six games for his team this season and is quite far down Los Blancos’ pecking order.
Eden argued that we might still see the best version of himself this winter in Qatar by recalling the most recent significant international competition. It is equivalent to the previous European Championship. “I was there for the quarterfinal match against Portugal after playing in the opening games. I’ll get some support from our technological and medical staff. Physically, I’m fine. The last friendly matchup with Egypt is significant since, of course, I’ve lost my sharpness. When the first game starts, I want to be there.”
Hazard, who has 122 caps overall, knows that he cannot continue playing at the highest level forever at the age of 31, thus the tournament will be vital for him. “I haven’t lost my quality overnight. As I compete in my third World Cup, I want to demonstrate that Belgium can still rely on its captain and that I want to give it all. Some of us are now of the age when you can leave the squad. Nevertheless, not before going all out in Qatar,” he adds.
The Madrid winger is open-minded about Belgium’s prospects, saying, “Our first focus will be to get past the group stage. If we give our all, then anything is possible. quarters, semifinals, or even the championship game.
