Eden Hazard forced off with ANOTHER injury while holding his hamstring as Belgium star's rotten luck continues at Euros
EDEN HAZARD was forced off injured AGAIN as his rotten luck continued.
The Belgium midfielder came off with three minutes to go of his country's Euro 2020 last-16 win against Portugal.
The Real Madrid man pulled up immediately and signalled to the bench that his game was up as he held his hamstring.
He was instantly replaced by Yannick Carrasco.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5Live, former England star Chris Waddle said: "He's pulled his hamstring or he's got cramp or something.
"His touch has been great. When he's been out injured, maybe he should have gone out earlier. It might just be the tiredness."
Hazard's time at Real Madrid has been blighted by injuries ever since his club-record £130m move from Chelsea in 2019.
When he has recovered from these, the 30-year-old has found it difficult to reach match fitness.
He started just SEVEN TIMES for Los Blancos last season after suffering repeated muscle injuries.
Hazard has made just 30 appearances out of a possible 76 in his two seasons in his underwhelming time in LaLiga.

While this latest setback looks like a hamstring injury, it is his anke that Hazard is most worried about.
Speaking before the Euros, the Belgian said: “I have broken my ankle three times and I don’t know whether it will ever be the same again.
“It will not be like it was ten years ago when I was starting out.
“I know if I am fighting fit exactly what I can do on the pitch and show what I am made of.
“But I have been injured a lot.”
Hazard also contracted coronavirus in November last year that saw him sent back to the sidelines.
