Everyone is so afraid of our golden boy, let's hope he gets some more room againt Russia and S Korea, two teams that will play a bit more attacking probably..

Needs to be way more aggressive (0 shots yesterday). Yeah he wasn't bad but star players rightly have more expectations and responsibility placed on their shoulders. You've already seen it with Messi, Neymar, Robben, Ronaldo, Benzema, Sanchez, Pirlo etc this WC.

He'll never fulfill his potential with his current laid-back & languid Zidane-esque style of play.

Eden Hazard has always had that problem whether its for Belgium or Chelsea. He doesn't shoot or have that mentality.

Robben is the other extreme, but Hazard needs to be selfish at times to be great. (hopefully, not the cristiano syndrome that Neymar has right now).

(SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH) i think the best position for him like zidane is in the middle. he is not a true winger like robben or ronaldo but he had a very good vision and he can be very useful in this place.

I disagree, he will attract too much attention in the middle of the pitch. Zidane was 6'1 and very strong, Hazard is maybe 5'8 and has good balance but will get marked out of games by bigger, physical midfielders.

He is best on the wing where he can use his dribbling to greater effect

He really, really wasnt. The only player that got behind the parked Algerian bus in the 1st half and his intelligence made the 2nd goal.

Enough with this outrageous double standard this guy gets held to! It's getting tedious and boring. PATHETIC.

He definitely wasn't great. Yes he got the assist but he needs to elevate his game. Almost every lesser team Chelsea or Belgium will play will sit deep, he has to find a way to impact those games... Messi can.

If the shot isn't on Hazard won't take it. He is a smart player and more often than not makes the right choice, taking low-percentage shots will undo all the good work he's done to become the player he is. I'm happy he's not taking 15-20 shots a game to score one goal like a lot of players do in football today.

Having said that it was his first ever World Cup game and you know the pressure is on him to be the talisman. He wasn't great but did do some things that made you remember how talented he is. Judge him on his whole tourney not his first ever game

I'm not. dribbling endlessly with no end product doesn't make you a world great, he needs to use his dribbling ability to get into areas to release a shot.

He wasn't half bad being double marked against a bus with Belgians ordered to play a slow tempo passing game trying to wear out Algeria. There's only so much you can do alone as a footballer..

I'd love to see more drive though, he needs to want the ball more.

First half he created a very good chance for Chadli and he also put in a great cross but Lukaku was too busy doing a Torres standing still inside the box. And then in the second half he created the winner. That's end product.

No it isn't because other than the Mertens goals his dribbling lead to nothing. He has the technique to get into good shooting areas, he needs to be a little more selfish when he gets there.

What? I just told you dribbling led to a good chance for Chadli that was wasted and an inch-perfect cross that should have resulted in a goal had Lukaku not stood still. Then you flippantly dismiss the creation of THE WINNING GOAL as if he didn't do enough.

I don't think he could get into a good shooting area yesterday. Algeria defended very deep and there was virtually no space through the middle. Any shot he would have taken would have been ill-advised. Algeria wanted long-shots; teams that defend deep would rather have the opposition taking speculative shots.

its not double standard, its expectations. or do you expect the same thing from Chadli and Hazard? Hazard was awful. he lost nearly EVERY ball he got, he wasnt going at passes, just waiting for them to come, while an Algerian interrupted (happened multiple times). the assist wasnt to hard to make, as he had plenty of space and room and Mertens made a great run.02 Hazard is the star player of Belgium, so you obviously expect him to make something happen, but he was awful. not only his performance but his attitude. he looked disgusted and annoyed instead of fighting and trying to improve something. he cant cope with aggresive defending against him, also happened multiple times while playing for us. If he wants to be anywhere near Balon D'Or as he self proclaimed, he should get his ass up and prove it. You can play bad, but at least have the right attitude- he nad nothing today and it shocked me. He was awful in the friendships, but you could think thats because he didnt want to injure himself or something, but today was the same thing. He jogged the whole time, wasnt running anywhere, when somebody passed the ball to him he waited for the ball instead of moving towards it etc etc. You have to be a blind Hazard fanboy to describe this performance as anything decent or good, especially if you know about his ablities. Today he was lazy and led his head down, when things didnt go his way and the02 Algerians marked him out massively. De Bruyne bossed the 2nd half when he moved to the pivot, thats what you would expect from Eden for Belgium. Taking control and leading your team instead of hiding.

Also something I dont get is, why at some games, he isnt going at any one on ones anymore. He is so great at it, but instead of trying to beat the opponents player, he passes the ball backwards and relaxes. dont get him at all sometimes. Needs to up his footballing intelligence.

You r right in some points but a little harsh in others. I don't think he was that bad against Algeria.

There are 3 things hazard doesn't do that should develop his game massively.

1. The most important is Hazard should stop dribbling away from the danger area(18box) and should attack pple and force them to run backwards towards their 18box. Robben and reus do this all the time, and it makes them look more dangerous(likely to make things happen) than Hazard.

He did this only twice towards the end of the first half against Algeria and it was their most dangerous moment. See robbens goal against Australia and notice how he runs directly into the box without hazards slowing down style.

2. He practically makes no runs off the ball. He should make diagonal runs from the wing to the strike area. He should be raising his hands to show pple where he wants the ball while running there. He is getting too predictable by only wanting to receive the ball to feet IMO.

3. When he realizes the defenders are isolating him from his teammates, he should pass quickly and go for the return pass instead of ball hogging the ball too much.

These 3 things r his biggest shortcomings and if he gets them right, the world is at his feet IMO.

He holds on to the ball far too long, it's always being a feature of his game which works when he's on form but backfires when he's not. It upsets the flow and balance of the team offensively and makes it difficult for his teammates to get the ball in a dangerous positions to score from. That's the main reason why he's one of the most fouled players in Europe.

He really needs to work on his decision making in that regard. knowing when a simple link up play and quick release is appropriate and when holding on to the ball is the right thing to do.

Obviously Hazard has already confirmed he isn't going anywhere, but a line from Sky Sports quoting Blanc ruling out the move also.
