Eden Hazard makes honest confession about Arsenal’s Trossard
The Real Madrid ace, Eden Hazard, has admitted that he questioned why he started for Belgium at the 2022 FIFA World Cup ahead of Arsenal’s Leandro Trossard.
Hazard retired from international football following Belgium’s elimination from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Despite his lack of regular game time for Madrid, Hazard started Belgium’s first two group matches at the World Cup against Canada and Morocco.
The former Chelsea star was dropped for Belgium’s final game in Group F against Croatia, while Trossard was given his first start of the tournament.
“We were talking about the name of Leandro Trossard to replace me; he was having a good season,” Hazard told RTBF.
“Even I wondered why I had to play when he had to go on the bench." It is normal for people to think that.
“Especially after the game against Egypt, where we didn’t play a good game and where I didn’t play a good game.
“Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t play the last matches of the World Cup with Portugal, and yet it’s Cristiano with Portugal; it is even more than Eden with Belgium. It is normal; it is football.”
