The striker of the Belgian football team spoke of high expectations from this team before the start of Euro 2020.
The Belgian national football team must face the Russian national football team on Saturday in its first match in the Euro, according to News i, quoting SID.
“I only trained for a whole week,” Real Madrid’s Belgian striker Eden Hazard said of the competition. To begin with, this is the decision of the coach, but I am not 100% ready yet, so we will see what we will do.
The 30-year-old has not been able to stabilize in the last two seasons and joined the Belgian army.
After finishing third in the 2018 World Cup, expectations are high from Belgium. With a host of big stars like Thibaut Courtois, Yannick Carrasco, Romulo Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne, it is not surprising that they are one of the most popular this year.
The player himself joked that if Belgium won the tournament, he might retire from international football.
“Now that we play for the Red Devils, we always put that pressure on ourselves,” he concluded. Because of what we have done in the past, people expect us to always make progress. We know we did an amazing job at the World Cup three years ago. We want to work harder. There is a lot of potential in this group.
