The captain of the Belgian team, Eden Hazard, commented this Thursday that not yet “one hundred percent” and that he has yet to speak with the coach, Roberto Martínez, and with the medical team to see what his role will be in the debut of the “Red Devils” on Saturday against Russia.

“I was able to play 10 minutes against Croatia (in the friendly last Sunday). I've only done a full week of training. We will see with the medical team what I will do for the first game. To begin with, it will be the coach's choice but I am not 100% yet, so we will see what we will do, “he said in an interview with public radio television RTBF.

The Real Madrid attacker has lived two seasons without continuity and plagued with injuries and arrived at the Belgium concentration between cottons, still with a sore leg.

The “Red Devils”, third in the 2018 World Cup in Russia and with players like Hazard himself, his Real Madrid teammate Thibaut Courtois, Atlético de Madrid winger Yannick Carrasco, Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku or the midfielder Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne are one of the favorite teams to win the tournament.

“Now when we play for the 'Red Devils' we always have that pressure on us. Because of what we did in the past, people always expect us to do better. We know we did something magnificent three years ago at the World Cup. We are going to concentrate to try to do better. We have potential in the team, “Hazard said.

The footballer, who in a joking interview this week had said that if Belgium won the Eurocup he would leave the national team, he again left a question about his eventual withdrawal from the national team.

“I don't know, we'll see,” he said, asked about that possibility.
