Liverpool Star makes Eden Hazard claims

New Scotland captain Andy Robertson believes Belgium skipper Eden Hazard is one of the best five players in world football.

The two will go head-to-head at Hampden Park on Friday night in the UEFA Nations League and Robertson knows his country face a tough test.

Hazard has been directly involved in 25 goals in his last 25 Belgium games and has made an excellent start to the new Premier League season with Chelsea.

Liverpool defender Robertson said: “He is probably in the top five [players in the world] at the minute. I have come up against him many times so I know what threat he can have.

“Even if he is having a quiet game, he can pop up at any point and turn a game. That is what we are up against.

“He is special. The way he turns and gets at players and commits two or three defenders, there’s not many that have that.

“He has been unbelievable for Chelsea and Belgium and it is somebody that we need to watch.

“The problem with Belgium is, you can’t focus on just Hazard because somebody else pops up. We have to be aware of all of their threats.

“We will be ready for them and do our best to stop them but we must cause them problems going the other way as well.”
