Yet to feature for Chelsea since the start of the season due to him recovering from an ankle injury, Eden Hazard played his first minutes of football with Belgium, in a 9-0 win over Gibraltar on Thursday night.
The Blues’ winger managed to pick up a goal and an assist before being replaced by his brother in the 77th minute, but, still, the forward was honest and admitted he still wasn’t 100% on Friday morning when interviewed by DH.
He said: “I missed a few things, but that’ll come back with time on the pitch, but I didn’t feel any pain. I pushed a bit to find some rhythm. I’m happy, especially at being back and to see the fans.”
However, despite featuring prominently in that win, the Chelsea star wasn’t entirely sure whether or not he would be able to play on Sunday against Greece.
Revealing he wanted to, Hazard did admit it might not be the best idea, and that it was up to Roberto Martinez, but considering it would be a tougher, and rough, game, and that he isn’t at 100% of his abilities, he didn’t want to make false promises.
The former Lille star enjoyed a good season last year, helping Chelsea win the Premier League with 16 goals and five assists in 36 appearances.
