Chelsea ace Hazard stands by accusing Lukaku of 'hiding': I'm captain!

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard stands by his halftime blast for Belgium teammate Romelu Lukaku during their World Cup win over Panama.

Hazard admitted in the post-match that he accused the Manchester United striker of "hiding".

He told Sky Sports today: "As the captain, even if I am not the captain I can talk, on the pitch I try to give my best, if I can help players to be better - I will.

"I just told Romelu we want to win the game we need him, not just as a scorer to score goals, but we want him to be involved in the build-up.

"We just talked normally and we won the game in the end so it was fine."
