Chelsea midfielder Hazard tells Courtois: Don't dribble. You're too big!

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has joked about Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois' howler for Belgium last night.

Courtois was caught out dribbling which led to Russia's goal in Belgium's 3-1 win.

“Courtois may look at me too much. He wants to imitate me, but then it goes wrong. He is too big and therefore he cannot dribble!" laughed Hazard.

“No, no problem: that can happen. We are not worried about Thibaut.

"I am also satisfied with the game I played afterwards. I remained calm, I am happy with that."
