Hazard expecting a 'complicated' game against Wales

Eden Hazard is wary of the threat that Wales pose after facing them in qualifiers.

Belgium forward Eden Hazard is looking forward to his side’s quarter-final clash with Wales after an impressive 4-0 win over Hungary, but said that the match would be ‘complicated.’

Man of the match Hazard scored one and set up another against Hungary as Belgium hit three late goals to set up a meeting with Chris Coleman’s side in Lille on Friday.

Belgium have hit some form and will start as favourites in Lille, but Hazard said he will not underestimate Wales after Belgium drew and lost to the Welsh in their two games during Euro 2016 qualifying.

"They're a complicated side to play against. We played them in the qualifiers, we haven't beaten them I don't think,” said Hazard following the game in Toulouse.

"They're quite a compact side with a star player [Gareth Bale] up front so we're going to have to study them well and try to do our best to win this match," he added.

Hazard said that he is looking forward to returning to Lille, where he played for four seasons before his move to Chelsea.

"We are lucky enough to play in Lille, I know the city very well. I am very proud. I was really motivated to go through, it will be a great celebration on Friday and I hope there will be plenty of fans there to take part," he said.

Despite Belgium’s much improved performance, Hazard said he was not getting carried away.

"For the time being we have achieved nothing, we are just in the quarters and we will take it one game at a time.

"As a team I feel we were really solid today. We made a lot of chances, and didn't give them too many.”
