Eden Hazard was the star of the game despite not getting a goal in Belgium’s 4-1 victory over Costa Rica in Brussels on Monday evening.

Hazard created two goals in the game and was seen hobbling off when substituted towards the end of the match.

After the game, Belgium manager Roberto Martinez said the injury was not serious.

“Eden is okay, he had a little trouble, but it’s nothing to worry about,” he said.

“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.”

Belgium, who open their group stage against Panama on Monday 18 June, are now unbeaten in 19 games.
