Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been in amazing form in the World Cup, and the Belgian was too hot to handle for the Tunisians.

It took the Chelsea winger took just six minutes to break the deadlock from the penalty spot after he had been fouled by Syam Ben Youssef.

His goal meant that after a goal-laden start to the tournament there have now been 27 consecutive matches without a scoreless a draw, breaking a record which had stood since 1954 when the tournament was held in Switzerland.

Hazard was so good against Tunisia that he was withdrawn early in the second half to be given extra time to prepare for next Thursday’s match in Kaliningrad which is likely to determine the winners of Group G.
