Former Belgium coach Marc Wilmots has told Eden Hazard he must continue believing he can score goals and said the Chelsea star and Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne can play together.

Hazard, 25, has struck an impressive seven goals in 12 Premier League games for his club this season, three more than he got in 31 top-flight outings last term.

The former Lille man's goal output with his country is, by stark contrast, disappointing, with just 17 goals to show from 77 caps.

However, after three goals...

Marc Wilmots: I never stood a chance as Belgium coach due to the media

Marc Wilmots has blamed the media for Belgium's premature exit at Euro 2016 and the end of his tenure as national team coach.

Although Wilmots ended his four-year spell in charge by agreeing with the Royal Belgian Football Association to vacate his seat two years before his contract expired, he...
