I will be supporting Egypt at the World Cup - Eden Hazard

After having a good game against the Egyptian side on Wednesday night, Eden Hazard has made it known he will be supporting them at the World Cup.

Eden Hazard had a fantastic game against Egypt on Wednesday, the Chelsea star man got a goal and also had a hand in Romelu Lukaku 's opener. Belgium won the tie by a 3-0. Marouane Fellaini got the last goal of the game in second-half stoppage time.

Speaking with ON Sport after the game, Hazard made it know he will be supporting the Egyptian side during the World Cup because of his friend Mohamed Salah and he also reveals he hopes Salah takes part in the Football Festival.

'Egypt have good players. We managed to take control of the match and scored an early goal which made things easier for ourselves,' he said

'We are glad about defeating Egypt 3-0. I wish Salah the best and hope he returns. I will support Egypt in the World Cup for him.'

'Egypt are so different without Salah but they performed well with compacts lines. Their playing style is close to that of Tunisia.'

'I spoke with Salah after the Champions League final and sent him a message, as I said he is my friend and I want to see him in the World Cup.'

Belgium has now played their last warm-up game before the World Cup kicks off on June 14 and they will be jetting out to Russia soon.
