Eden Hazard Tipped to Replicate Euro 2016 Win In World Cup 2018 Thriller.

In history, it’s only a few countries that have only been able to achieve a comeback from 2 goals down. Belgium fought back from two goals down in their clash with Japan on Monday.

Goals from Genki Haraguchi and Takashi Inui in a seven-minute spell after half-time put Japan on track for their first ever World Cup quarter-final.

In an interview with Hazard, “We have players who can change the game, players on the pitch and from the bench can make the difference. Today we’re just happy to have won the game and to go on to the quarter-final.

“During the first 20 to 25 minutes of the first half, we were quite good. But what went wrong was at the beginning of the second half – this is where we conceded two goals. And those two goals were avoidable.

“We had some little defensive errors but the reaction we showed tonight was great. Maybe we needed this type of match for the future. We could have been eliminated, but we ended up in the quarter-finals. So we’re all very happy.”

Brazil await in Kazan, Russia on Friday, with Hazard set to come against Chelsea team-mate Willian in an epic clash.
