Chelsea star Eden Hazard could be sidelined for months after suffering a fractured ankle in Belgium training.
The winger will consequently miss the upcoming international friendly against the Czech Republic and the World Cup qualifier with Estonia.
Hazard twisted his ankle during Sunday’s training session and was quickly ruled out of Belgium’s upcoming internationals, although the Royal Belgian Football Association (KBVB) was initially unable to provide any details on the extent of the injury.
Nevertheless, they later followed up their initial statement on Hazard’s physical misfortune with an update that he has suffered a fractured ankle.
“Eden Hazard is out of #belcze and #estbel due to injury after twisting his ankle today in training (individual action). More news in 48h,” a brief statement on the official Twitter account of the national team read.
“Update | Medical imaging showed that Eden Hazard has a fracture in his right ankle #belcze #estbel #roadtorussia”
