HAZARD-OUS NEW BELGIUM CAPTAIN
Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard headlines Marc Wilmots' 24-man Belgium squad for Euro 2016, with Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany missing out due to injury.
Hazard struggled to find his best form at Chelsea this campaign, but remains an undisputed starter for his country, with Wilmots naming the winger his captain in the absence of Kompany. "Kompany's absence is a blow for him, a blow for the team. He is our leader," the Belgium coach commented on the defender's injury. "He must now focus on his recovery and his health, and make sure he returns as soon as possible at Manchester City. We cannot mourn over his absence. We have to look forward."
