Mourinho: Chelsea ace Hazard let down by hiding Belgium teammates

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho feels Chelsea ace Eden Hazard was let down by his Belgium teammates last night.

France emerged victorious in the World Cup semi-final against Belgium on Tuesday evening.

And Mourinho told Russia Today: "I think the Belgium players will go home with a bad feeling – the feeling they could have done more.

"A feeling that Hazard is out of it [criticism] because he tried everything, but many others kept hiding, especially in the last 20 minutes.

"Many of them did not turn up for the big occasion.

"France were good at the basic things, they defended well and scored – they controlled the game well."
