Hazard, De Bruyne out of EURO 2020 quarter-final match against Italy

gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw== - Hazard, De Bruyne out of EURO 2020 quarter-final match against Italy

Belgium will be without Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne when they face Italy in the quarter-final of the EURO 2020 tournament.

The duo picked injuries during the Round-of-16 clash against Portugal on Sunday evening and were hoping to make the team on Friday.

However, according to coach Roberto Martinez, the two will not be fit for the clash but could recover in good time for the semi-final match if they get past Roberto Mancini’s side.

De Bruyne, who missed the opening match with an injury he picked against Chelsea in the Champions League final, was on the receiving end of a heavy tackle in the first half and was withdrawn two minutes after the restart.

Hazard, on the other hand, picked what seemed a minor knock late in the game, with Martinez saying this after the match;

“It was a really bad tackle [on De Bruyne] and we will see. We have no diagnosis. Hazard is a muscle injury and we will see in 48 hours,” Martinez said straight after the game.

He then added this on their chances of playing on Friday against Italy.

“It’s quite positive for us. Eden and Kevin have no structural damage. They will remain with the squad. We won’t get them fully fit for Friday. In the next phase, they will be fit to play. We take it day by day,” Martinez said.
