Hazard boost for Belgium


Belgium captain Eden Hazard expects to be fit for the Red Devils' Euro 2016 quarter-final against Wales in Lille on Friday.

The Chelsea playmaker injured his thigh during his man-of-the-match performance against Hungary in the Round of 16 on Sunday.

Hazard set up the second goal for substitute Michy Batshuayihe, and netted the third himself with a screamer from the edge of the box, as the Red Devils beat the Magyars 4-0 in the Stadium Municipal in Toulouse.

Hazard has been Belgium's stand-out player in Euro 2016, providing three assists, creating 15 chances and completing 22 take-ons, more than any other player in France.

The 25-year-old did not train this week until Thursday, but insists that he will be ready to face Chris Coleman's side in the Stade Pierre Mauroy on Friday evening.

"Yes, things are OK," he told Uefa.com.

"There are still 24 hours to go before the game, but I managed to train today. We will see tomorrow but I expect to be fit."
