Ahead of Belgium’s semi-final clash with France on Tuesday, France defender Lucas Hernandez has suggested he isn’t worried about meeting Chelsea and Belgium star Eden Hazard.
France eliminated Argentina in the round of 16 before securing their route to the last four with a relatively comfortable 2-0 win against Uruguay while Eden Hazard outshone Neymar as Belgium knocked out Brazil in the quarter-final.
“Hazard? We’ve already eliminated the best player in the World [Messi],” said Hernandez.
“That’s right, he didn’t touch the ball. We hope to repeat this when we face Hazard.”
