Belgium coach Roberto Martinez reassured Chelsea fans about Eden Hazard‘s fitness, claiming the Belgian forward has no injury concerns.
Hazard captained his national team in the absence of the injured Vincent Kompany in the 8-1 win against Estonia, valid for Russia 2018 World Cup Qualifiers, scoring also a goal that took his tally to 10 goals in 18 appearances for club and country this season.
He left the pitch in apparent discomfort after 73 minutes and was replaced by Everton’s Kevin Mirallas.
Martinez, anyway, played down any fear in his post-match press conference:
“Eden Hazard has no injury, but he received a kick on the calf.”
