Real Madrid: Hazard sits out Belgium’s thrashing of Iceland

Eden Hazard didn’t make it off the bench as Belgium beat Iceland 5-1 on Tuesday night.

The Real Madrid forward hasn’t featured in either of Belgium’s Nations League matches this month.

“He’s still not at full fitness,” Belgium boss Roberto Martinez said of his captain before Tuesday’s game.

“We’re not going to take any risks.”

Martinez kept to his word, but Hazard’s absence from action raises further concerns about his recovery from the ankle injury that plagued him last season.
