Belgium's time to shine at World Cup, says Hazard

Belgium's time to shine at World Cup, says Hazard

"I wanted to be in a World Cup once more with my teammates".

The former AC Milan player also scored one goal at the 2014 finals in Brazil and was on target in Russian Federation, coming off the bench to salvage a 2-2 draw against Senegal in Japan's second Group H match.

The victor of that tie will go on to face the victor of Monday's other game, which sees Belgium meet Japan in Rostov-on-Don (1800 GMT). This World Cup keeps on giving and we expect that to continue as we race towards finalizing the cast for the quarter-finals of this tournament.

Belgium became the first side to win a World Cup knockout game from two goals down since 1970, making the loss all the more gut-wrenching for Japan and their supporters.

George is believed to have given consideration to the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers , as well as the Thunder. George declined his player option last week to become an unrestricted free agent, but didn't take long to make a decision.

"I am also a lot stronger than four years ago in Brazil". The disappointment was obvious, with some of the players falling on their knees in despair after the final whistle, while others just cried.

"But I think we saw a different Romelu in the second half with his two goals [against Panama]".

At the 2014 World Cup, Belgium reached the quarter-finals, losing to eventual runners-up Argentina, but Hazard was a pale shadow of his brilliant club self. We don't have many resting days over the season. This year was only the second time in history that the team made it through the group stages to the final sixteen.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said Nishino's negative tactics against Poland showed he had a ruthless edge. The Red Devils are right in the midst of their golden generation, with so many of their most important players now in their physical primes. To beat Brazil, you have to be 100 per cent, 120 per cent of your mental and physical capacity.
