2018 World Cup: Hazard Sends Message To Salah After Scoring In Belgium’s 3-0 Win Against Egypt
Chelsea playmaker, Eden Hazard is hoping that his friend, Mohamad Salah will recover from injury in time to make a big impact at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The Liverpool forward is a major doubt for the upcoming tournament as a result of the shoulder injury he sustained during last month’s Champions League final.
Hazard scored as Belgium triumphed to a comfortable 3-0 win over Egypt in Wednesday’s World Cup warm-up friendly in Brussels, and hopes his former Chelsea teammate will be able to participate in what will be Egypt’s first World Cup appearance since 1990.
Speaking after the match, Hazard said; “Salah is a friend and I wish he will recover before the World Cup.
“Egypt are a good team. They have many good players and I think they will perform well in the World Cup. Egypt are a compact team and they are very organised.”
Manchester United duo, Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini were also on the scoresheet in Belgium’s 3-0 win over Egypt.
