Eden Hazard has decided to retire from the Belgian national team after failing at the 2022 World Cup. This ends his 14-year career at the international level.
Eden Hazard is labeled as the first player in the Belgian golden generation that emerged in the 2010s. The Real Madrid playmaker played for the Belgian national team for the first time in 2008.
Even though he was plagued by recurrent injuries and a decline in performance, Eden Hazard was still called up to the Belgian national team. The former Chelsea even captained the team at the 2022 World Cup.
Unfortunately, Belgium’s appearance at the 2022 World Cup failed miserably. The team nicknamed The Red Devils ran aground in the group phase following a 0-2 defeat to Morocco and a draw against Croatia.
Eden Hazard announced his retirement on social media.
“A page turned today. Thank you for your love. Thank you for the unparalleled support. Thank you for all the happiness shared since 2008.”
“I have decided to end my international career. The success of this team is in sight, and I will miss you all.”
This decision ended Eden Hazard’s 14-year international career, which began in 2008 at the age of 17.
Since making his debut, the Real Madrid player has won 126 caps, scoring 33 goals for the Belgian national team.
Hazard can now focus on his club and getting his career back on track after enduring an injury nightmare since moving to the Santiago Bernabeu.
France will face England in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup, Sunday (11/12/2022) in the morning WIB. Striker Olivier Giroud is looking forward to going head to head with Harry Kane and has had plenty to say about Hugo Lloris.
Olivier Giroud has a good understanding of the English game having played for Arsenal and Chelsea for nine consecutive years between 2012 and 2021.
The France striker revealed he had spoken to national team captain Hugo Lloris, who plays his club football with Tottenham, about how much they wanted to avoid losing to one of the country’s great rivals.
“For England, they had a good 2022 World Cup ,” said Giroud. “I hope we can make things difficult for them.”
“I know this team very well, we spoke to Hugo about this game and we said we don’t want to lose against England.”
Olivier Giroud is aware that the match against England will not be easy because his opponent has a lot of potential young players. He predicts the fight will be fierce.
“It’s a special game for us. They have so many young players in this generation, I think they have quality but also quantity in the squad.
“They have different options and it will be a good match to watch. I hope it will continue well for us,” Giroud added.
Giroud also spoke of the dangers of England captain Harry Kane who, like Giroud, has 52 goals for his national team and could also break the national goalscoring record in Qatar. Kane is one goal behind Wayne Rooney’s total of 53 goals for The Three Lions.
“We have spoken to Hugo about him,” Giroud said of Kane. “He’s a player with a similar profile to me. He’s big, strong and he does well in front of goal.
“I think in the last few months and years, he’s been playing deeper to get involved in the game. I don’t know if it’s because of the coach, but he makes a lot of passes.
France assistant manager Guy Stephan also discussed how Lloris could help France overcome England.
“He played with Harry Kane for a few years. He knows the way Kane kicks the ball, where he goes. He knows how to use his head and run as well.”
“That’s what you get when there are players who play for the same club. They will have a lot to say to each other when they return to Tottenham.”
