Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard was forced to leave Sunday’s match against Portugal with what appeared to be a hamstring injury. This was Hazard’s second start in this tournament and it looks like he could need to miss some time, although the Belgian national team have not published a medical report just yet.
Goalkeeper and Hazard’s friend Thibaut Courtois talked to the press after the game and appeared to be pessimistic about the injury.
“It doesn’t look good,” he said when talking to COPE.
Coach Roberto Martinez was also asked about the matter and delivered a more cautious approach.
“We still don’t know what he has, we know it’s a muscle thing but we need 48 hours before we can run some tests. We shouldn’t rule him out for Friday [Quarterfinals] just yet,” he explained.
This could be yet more devastating news for Hazard, who was regaining some confidence and momentum in this tournament. Stay tuned for more news about Hazard’s potential hamstring injury.
