Chelsea sweat as Eden Hazard misses training with Belgium

Eden Hazard could be a doubt for Belgium’s friendly against Scotland on Friday after he missed training on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old has enjoyed a strong start to the season under Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea with two goals and two assists in his opening four matches.

Hazard has linked up with Belgium’s squad for the international break as Roberto Martinez’s side are due to take on Scotland before travelling to Iceland for the start of their UEFA Nations League campaign.

The Chelsea midfielder trained with his Belgium teammates on Tuesday but missed Wednesday’s session.

Belgium have not provided an official reason for Hazard’s absence but he did travel to Bastogne in the south of Belgium on Wednesday afternoon for a sponsorship event.

Toby Alderweireld, Marouane Fellaini, Simon Mignolet, Nacer Chadli and Christian Benteke also missed Wednesday’s training session.
