His predictions in full…

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez revealed that Hazard suffered a dead leg during their 4-1 win over Costa Rica.

Eden is okay, he had a little trouble, but its nothing to worry about, Martinez explained.

I really enjoyed his performance. He was sharp and strong, he was majestic.

At the end he just came off because he had a little bit of a dead leg, a little bit of a knock on his leg.
