24 hours to take off for Russia, Eden Hazard confided in the RTBF news this Thursday at noon. The Madrilenian has only one hurry: for the tournament to begin. “We can’t wait to start the competition. We’ve had a good two weeks of preparation. Now is the time to start things off well. We’re going to want to play and win the matches. I hope everyone will be ready. . “
Disturbed by physical worries the past two seasons since arriving in Madrid, the Belgian is not approaching competition in the form of his life. His tenure against the Russians in 48 hours is uncertain.
“Physically? Things are going very slowly. I was able to play ten minutes against Croatia. I only did a full week of training. We will see with the medical staff what I will do for the first match. It will also be the coach’s choices. I am not yet 100%. We will see what we will do. ”
“Stop my international career? I don’t know, we’ll see”
After a brilliant third place conquered three years ago, the former Lille knows how to handle the pressure despite his injuries.
“When we play for the Devils, we always have this pressure above us because of what we have done in the past. We did something magnificent in Russia but we have to forget that. We will try to do better. . We know our potential. We will do everything to go as far as possible. “
Far from his family, the captain of the selection adapts to the particular circumstances of the coronavirus which prevent relatives from following the national team contrary to habits. “I have the support of my family. They hope we can see each other. We are used to having them from time to time. With the coronavirus, that is not possible. We have to use technology. to see them.”
When asked what he would do in the event of a triumph in the final, the attacking midfielder was not very original. “If we win, we’ll party for a few days and then take a well-deserved vacation before preparing for the next season.”
Hazard was then more evasive when asked if he was planning on continuing his career with the Red Devils. “I don’t know, we’ll see”, he smiled. A way to distract from your physical form? This is what a whole people is hoping for.
