Belgian national team winger Eden Hazard feels that the return of Inter striker Romelu Lukaku won’t necessarily be the decisive factor for the Red Devils having a successful World Cup in Qatar.
Speaking in a press conference, as reported by FCInterNews, the Real Madrid and former Chelsea and Lille winger emphasized that if he is playing well, Belgium will have a chance.
Belgium are still regarded by many as being in the midst of their “golden generation,” although certainly in one of the last one or two tournaments for it.
Inter striker Lukaku is widely considered to be part of this generation, as is Hazard as well as other players such as Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne and Atletico Madrid’s Axel Witsel.
The Red Devils won their first group stage match 1-0 against Canada, although the feeling is that there was much to improve about their performance, particularly if they have the threat of Lukaku leading the line.
For his part, Hazard argued that “If I’m playing well, then we have a chance to win the World Cup.”
