Belgium coach Martinez delighted with form of Real Madrid attacker Hazard

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez is delighted with the form of Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard.

After two injury-plagued seasons at Real Madrid, he played the full 90 minutes for Belgium against Finland in the final match of the Euro 2020 group stages.

"It's the first time we've seen him play 90 minutes since November 2019," Martinez reflected.

"He seems to be enjoying his football, he understands the players around him well.

"If there's something that doesn't worry me about Hazard it's his individual talent, so I'm very happy to see him developing well.

"Physically he feels very strong and now we have a few days to prepare for the next game and see how he feels for the next part of the tournament."
