Eden Hazard dropped from Belgium squad for misconduct

Lille's Eden Hazard has been dropped from the Belgium squad ahead of their friendly match against Slovenia.

Coach George Leekens explained his decision at a press conference ahead of the friendly and insisted everyone must comply with his rules. Hazard was substituted in the 60th minute of his country's clash with Turkey which happened to be a crucial European Championship qualifier. Instead of joining his colleagues on the bench, he went straight down the tunnel, much to the disgust of his coach.

The story is too old to be commented.
