Belgium and England are grouped in Group G alongside Panama and Tunisia in the upcoming World Cup in Russia, and Eden Hazard will be up against club skipper Gary Cahill.
Speaking ahead of the clash which could decide the outcome of the group leaders, Hazard admitted he has one eye firmly on the third and potentially decisive group clash with England on June 28.
“The England game will be special, of course because we know all the players,” he said.
“Especially I know Gaz, Gary Cahill. It will be good to play against friends. Almost all of the team play in England.
“That will be a special game for us but first we have two other games, against Panama and Tunisia, and that is the third game.
“Maybe in the past England would have been favourites, but now it is different.
“I think we are quite the same. It is 50/50.
“England have a lot of good players, and we also have good players so we will see.”
