- Eden Hazard has been directly involved in 14 goals in his last 14 games for Belgium (eight goals, six assists). This isn't just the Scotsman in me talking here, but these two teams are better than England and Croatia - although anything can happen in a final.

"I am motivated to speak with the youngest in the squad".

'He hadn't played a lot of football and to tell the truth I didn't know him. This is his time to shine.
