Thorgan Hazard is turning heads across Europe as his first half brace helped SV Zulte-Waregem to a comfortable 4-2 defeat of Lokeren in Belgian’s Jupiler Pro League on the weekend.

Hazard, who joined Zulte on loan from Chelsea in the summer, opened the scoring in the first half with a strike from outside the box which Lokeren keeper Boubacar Barry failed to keep out when his attempted save fumbled the ball inside the near post.

The second half opened with Hazard’s second as the 18-year old capitalized on another Barry error, pouncing on the keeper’s mistake to drive the ball home from close range.

Jens Naessens and Junior Malanda rounded off Waregem’s win although the real delight for the Essevee was Hazard as his double elevates him to equal second in the league’s top goal scorers with 7 goals from 9 games.
