Eden Hazard will be in’ great ‘2021 after missing Belgium’s last match this year with the coronavirus, according to Roberto Martinez.
Since completing a € 100m (£ 88m / $ 112m) transfer to Real Madrid in June 2019, Hazard has struggled with injury problems and has been limited to just 25 games in all competitions.. .
He scored two goals and provided four assists for Los Blancos, after a final season at Chelsea in which he scored 16 goals and 15 assists in the Premier League alone. .
A muscle injury means that his first appearance in 2020-21 did not come until October 27, and after three matches of his return, he tested positive for coronavirus..
Hazard was positive again for Covid-19 this weekend, and will thus miss Belgium’s Group A2 Nations League match with Denmark.
Nevertheless, Martinez is confident that the 29-year-old will soon return to his former heights and play an important role for Madrid and Belgium..
“Eden really wanted to join us and play their last three matches in 2020,” Martinez said Tuesday..
“It’s been a really complicated year. I’m convinced that 2021 will be a great year for Eden Hazard, as well as for the national team.
Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois added: « It is a shame to miss this match, but we have the quality to win without him. ». .
“The group has more experience, and we know what we need to improve. We have one of the best teams in the world.
Martinez will also miss suspended duo Axel Witzel and Thomas Monier at the Heverley match, as it would be a point sufficient for Belgium to qualify for the Nations League Finals. .
“We will not focus on the absentees. « I’m looking at the players who will have the opportunity to introduce themselves, to seize the opportunity, » Martinez said..
“I have several solutions to make up for the absence of Wistel and Meunier. There is Thomas Phuket, Thorgan Hazard, Nasser El Shazly, and others.
“Denmark is a very strong team but we want to play in the Finals so we will do everything to win. We will not aim to tie. We have to win the fans and finish the year well.
Belgium missed a place in the inaugural Nations League Finals in 2019 after losing their last group game to Switzerland 5-2. .
“We know their strengths and weaknesses. If they win, they will quality. We have to show sharpness from the first minute to the last, be careful and focused. « We won’t easily win this match 4-0, » Courtois said..
“We relaxed a little bit that day [against Switzerland], that’s right. We learned from that match. We are ready for Wednesday.
