Roberto Martinez delivers mixed news on condition of injured Belgium duo

Posted by

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has provided a somewhat positive update on the condition of Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne.

The Red Devils progressed to the quarter-final stage of Euro 2020 with a 1-0 victory over Portugal yesterday evening.

However, Martinez’s men were not able to get through the contest unscathed, with both Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne leaving the field injured.

Both players are influential for Belgium, so having to head further into the tournament without either, or even both, would be a huge blow for the nation’s hopes.

Martinez has now provided an update on the condition of both – and he’s ruling neither out at this stage.

With the Italy game being just four days away, time is very much against the two players.

You imagine that Belgium will be preparing for the fixture on the assumption they won’t be available, but of course, while hoping that they are.

He does suggest that, were Belgium to progress, both players would be available to feature, which is positive – it could have been a lot worse.
