Breaking: Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois Hurt
Chelsea pair Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois were left “hurt” after the new era for the Belgian national team under Roberto Martinez was greeted with a chorus of boos.
A 2-0 home loss to Julen Lopetegui’s Spain was far from the ideal start for Martinez, who saw scorer of both goals David Silva and Diego Costa outclass his side in attacking areas.
After the frustration of an unfulfilled Euro 2016 campaign ended at the quarter-final stage by Wales the Brussels public had little patience with their talented but struggling side, who they began to jeer after just 45 minutes.
