Hazard, Vermaelen absent from Belgium training

Bordeaux (France), June 28 (IANS) Playmaker Eden Hazard and defender Thomas Vermaelen did not take part in the Belgium football team’s training session on Tuesday.

Hazard, who played a great role in Belgium’s victory in the Euro 2016 second round against Hungary 4-0, suffered a contusion during training and had to stay at the team’s hotel in Haillan near Bordeaux, reports Efe.

FC Barcelona player Vermaelen, who will not play against Wales on July 1 due to suspension, too remained in the hotel.

However, the injury does not seem to threaten the presence of Hazard in Friday’s game against Wales in Lille.

Hazard, who plays for English club Chelsea, had to spend several days having intensive physiotherapy after his first match in Euro 2016 against Italy.
