However, this year's World Cup in Qatar , Belgium is not as good as in previous years, directly out of the group stage, the Belgian captain Eden Hazard issued a post announcing that he will end his national team career.
According to foreign media reports, the 31-year-old Hazard represented the national team at the age of 17 and played for the country in the 2014, 2018 and 2022 World Cups and the 2016 and 2021 European Cups. In the 2018 World Cup, in addition to leading the team to win the third place for Belgium, he also won the World Cup Silver Ball Award. Hazard played a total of 126 games for the national team and scored 33 goals.
