Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Eden Hazard will miss the coming games for the national team in the international round of matches.

Eden Hazard missed Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Stoke on Saturday with a calf injury sustained in training. The knock made him unavailable for Belgium’s games against Greece and Russia over the next two weeks.

“He has been in Belgium but not with the group,” Martinez said.

“We are working with Chelsea to get the best treatment.

“It is a big problem to lose Hazard, it is obvious that we wanted to have him, but it will be a good test for us without him.”

Hazard has been in brilliant form this season, and probably suffered the knock due to the countless times he was kicked by Manchester United players last Monday.
