Real Madrid playmaker Eden Hazard has been dropped from the Belgium squad ahead of their final World Cup 2022 qualifier against hosts Wales in Group E. Eden Hazard and four others were dropped from the squad with a place at the World Cup tournament in Qatar already sealed.
Belgium secured a spot at the tournament on Qatari soil next year when they emerged as Group E winners in the European section of the qualifiers thanks to the home win over Estonia. The Belgians beat lowly Estonia 3-1 at home to secure passage to Qatar. The motivation for the final qualifier against the Welsh team is to maintain their unbeaten run in the qualifiers. Belgium can also take their winning run to six games in the qualifiers with an away win over Wales.
Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard has found it hard to ride on his luck in recent years and has suffered a lot from different injury problems that have hampered his career. Since moving from Chelsea to Real Madrid some months ago, the Belgium international forward has not lived up to expectations and continues to owe the Spanish La Liga giants and their fans consistency on the pitch. His time at the club, which is now considered by many to be a disaster, has continued to hit rock-bottom and even though he has been trying hard to get it back on track, the injuries keep coming back.

That is what is being inferred for the ace player of Chelsea, Callum Hudson-Odoi as per experts like Michael Owen. It is often that players do not find the right opening in their team which is also a reason for their talents not being fully exploited. This is in case of Callum Hudson currently whose progression is now in question.
This is as per the opinion of former Liverpool and England striker, Michael Own who is looking at the present team formation for Chelsea, in light of the Europa League coming up. The start was on Thursday when Hudson-Odoi was select to make the opening shots. This is the fourth appearance of this eighteen-year-old in a competition in the current season. He has been offered this position after he scored a goal in the game against PAOK Salonika resulting in a winning score of 4-0 at Stamford Bridge. He is mentored by seniors such as Eden Hazard with whom he has appeared in photo shoots even. He is considered a well-chosen recruit from the Chelsea academy and seniors have high hopes of his skills and performance.

It depends on the intensity of the match.” Blues will try to expand their unbeaten start during Sarri to 18 competitive matches against Toffees, where London’s derby with Spurs follows Wembley on November 24th. The triumph on Palace saw Sarri equal 1994 record of Frank Clark which was remaining unbeaten in his first 11 Premier League game; avoid losing against Sarri and Everton will have a record for himself.
