The second-oldest sibling has spent his life being compared to the Belgium captain, but now he's starting to match his brother's performances
Before Belgium's run to the World Cup semi-final, Roberto Martinez's side had to navigate a difficult qualifying group including Greece and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Having won their first four games comfortably, with Eden Hazard in three of them, the Red Devils were forced to do without their star man for the home game against Greece.
Eden's younger brother Thorgan Hazard was drafted into the squad to replace him but failed to get off the bench as Belgium could only draw 1-1. By the end of the campaign, they had won the rest of their games, with the younger Hazard starting and scoring against Cyprus, while the older Hazard netted twice.
Belgium brought both Hazards to the World Cup, but Thorgan was still a fringe member of the panel, starting just the dead-rubber against England after Belgium had ensured qualification from their group. However, thanks to a stunning season at club level, he was finally handed a chance to shine in November, helping Belgium defeat Iceland 2-0 before scoring twice against Switzerland three days later.
