Eden Hazard pulls out of Belgium squad after Man United kicking

Eden Hazard will miss Belgium’s World Cup qualifiers against Greece after a calf injury forced him to withdraw from the squad.

Some will suspect foul play on the part of Chelsea in trying to keep their wounded star man out of further trouble, but Hazard’s record for his country is impeccable and he has captained his country on many occasions.

The news was revealed by well-connected Belgian journalists Kristof Terreur on Twitter:

Chelsea struggled to a win over Stoke without their star forward, who has been absolutely flying in recent games. Missing him for another Premier League fixture would be a blow, although Terreur’s followup tweet suggests that the winger may be back sooner rather than later.
